If you have loose skin or excess fat in the abdomen, then a tummy tuck can tone and tighten the area. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty removes extra fat and skin in the abdomen. There are immense benefits of having a tummy tuck done, not only will you look better physically, but you will also feel more confident and self-assured.

Benefits of a tummy tuck

A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscles. The muscles in the abdomen often separate as a result of pregnancy or aging, but a tummy tuck repairs the muscles.

The improved contour in the abdominal area after a tummy tuck creates a better shape overall, as the entire midsection is firmer and smoother. These are just a few of the benefits one can gain from doing a tummy tuck.

New mothers often opt for a tummy tuck in order to regain a trimmer midsection after giving birth. It resolves the issue of a protruding belly, which is often a problem after childbirth, because the abdominal muscles stretch during pregnancy.

In addition, people who undergo bariatric surgery often choose to do a tummy tuck, in order to tighten the midsection.

The Procedure

A tummy tuck is usually done under general anesthesia. The incision is made between the pubic region and the belly button. The skin in the upper part of the abdomen is pulled down, the extra skin is trimmed, and the incisions are then closed.


Patients may need drainage tubes under the skin to drain away excess blood and fluid. Recovery takes between 2 to 4 weeks. After that time patients can enjoy all the benefits of a tummy tuck.

About a mommy makeover

A mommy makeover is a mix of cosmetic procedures that target the areas most affected by pregnancy and childbirth. During the motherhood experience the breasts often get pulled to and fro, causing them to sag and flatten. In addition, excess fat often remains on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, so these areas may need remodeling.
