Is a Tummy Tuck the Right Procedure For Me?

If you have excess fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, or you have sagging skin or loose abdominal muscles due to pregnancy, the natural aging process or weight loss surgery, a tummy tuck might be right for you.

For people in all stages of life, a tummy tuck can remove excess fat and skin from your abdominal area. Whether you’ve just had a pregnancy that left your skin and abdominal muscles stretched or you’re a senior citizen whose skin has lost some elasticity, a tummy tuck can help you look and feel more like yourself.

A tummy tuck may be the right procedure for you if:

  • You want to get rid of sagging skin
  • You want to get rid of stubborn belly fat
  • You want to tighten abdominal muscles
  • You want to “lose the pooch” in your stomach
  • You want to regain your self-confidence

Because every patient is different, it’s important let an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Kleto assess your health and to determine your tummy tuck candidacy. Ideal candidates are those who are close to their ideal body weight and are in good physical health. If you are a viable tummy tuck candidate, Dr. Kleto can help you decide which kind of tummy tuck (mini, complete, or extended) is the right procedure for you.
