When is a Tummy Tuck Appropriate?
At The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we are committed to ensuring that you only undergo the procedures that are right for you. A tummy tuck is no exception- it’s serious, extensive surgery that you should only undergo if you are a sound candidate.
Still, it’s also an excellent way of achieving a dramatic change in the appearance of your mid-section. So the appeal of the tummy tuck is obvious, especially when it’s performed by our triple board-certified plastic surgeon.
A tummy tuck can achieve quite a bit, but it’s main purpose is to strengthen loose abdominal muscles. Muscles are often loosened as a result of some significant trauma or dramatic change- pregnancy, for example, or significant weight loss.
You should only undergo a tummy tuck if you’re in sound overall health and suffer from no active infections. You should be prepared for a fairly extensive recovery process and come into the procedure with reasonable expectations.
