When to Consider a Tummy Tuck
- Posted on: May 15 2023
Dr. Sasson is passionate about helping you get the look you desire and helping you gain your confidence back. Tummy tucks are great for those who have loose skin and extra tissue around their belly, whether that be from extreme weight loss or pregnancy. Here are a few reasons you may want to consider getting a tummy tuck:
It Can Reduce the Appearance of Your Stretch Marks
Believe it or not, but at H. Sasson MD Plastic Surgery, we can completely remove a lot of your stretch marks with a tummy tuck. Although there are always a few stubborn stretch marks that won’t completely go away, we can move them to a part of the body where they won’t be as noticeable after reducing their appearance.
You Are (Probably) Done Having Children
While getting a tummy tuck won’t affect any future pregnancies, it’s essential to understand that if you get pregnant after a tummy tuck, it could cause all of the loose skin to reappear.
You Had a C-Section
Tummy tucks are commonly done after pregnancies, more specifically, c-sections. A tummy tuck after a c-section can reduce the appearance of scarring on the abdomen after a c-section.
You are Experiencing Back Pain
A tummy tuck can help with back pain and the discomfort that comes with hernias and gastric issues.
How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?
Dr. Sasson performs tummy tucks by making a small incision in the lower stomach. He makes the cut in a spot that will not be noticeable if it scars. Then he removes the extra skin and fat tissues in order to pull the incision closed. Once this is complete, the abdomen will look tighter and flatter.
