The tummy tuck procedure is an extremely common plastic surgery procedure. Men and women across the country opt into the procedure to help remove excess skin and fat that has left them feeling less than 100% confident in their appearance. While this procedure is highly common, there are a few frequently asked questions that may help you decide if you’re ready to schedule a consultation.
Tummy Tuck FAQs
Q: Is the tummy tuck procedure right for me?
A: If you have excess skin and fat in your midsection due to weight loss, pregnancy, or weight gain the procedure might be right for you. It’s important to have a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon to determine whether the tummy tuck is the right procedure to achieve your goals, but the tummy tuck is a fantastic option for those who want to remove excess skin and fat.
Q: Does the tummy tuck require a full hip to hip scar?
A: No, the tummy tuck procedure is designed to be tailored to your specific needs. While some patients may require a full hip to hip scar to achieve their goals, other tummy tuck patients need a smaller incision or can even have their tummy tuck completed through liposuction instead.
Q: Is it a bad idea to combine this procedure with others?
A: No, in fact, many patients combine the procedure with a breast augmentation, breast lift, Brazillian butt lift, and/or other procedures. Combining procedures allows you to combine your recovery times and reach your goals faster.
