How do I know a Tummy Tuck is right for me?

A tummy tuck is done mainly on women done having children or people who have lost a lot of weight and would like to look tighter and firmer in the abdominal area. A good Tummy Tuck candidate has the following characteristics:

  • Excess or sagging abdominal skin with multiple stretch marks;
  • An abdomen that protrudes and is out of proportion to the rest of your body;
  • Abdominal muscles that have been separated and weakened;
  • Excess fatty tissue that is concentrated in your abdomen.

How do I know what Tummy Tuck method is right for me?

It depends on the severity and the location of your abdominal stretching and sagging. If it is not severe and located in the lower abdomen wall than you may need just a min tummy tuck. If you have more pronounced sagging and stretching then a standard tummy tuck would be best for you. The only way to determine what is the right method is to come in for a consultation with Dr. Luria at his Tampa Plastic Surgery Practice.

What are the risks associated with Tummy Tuck?

All surgeries carry some degree of risk. The subject of risks and potential complications of surgery is best discussed on a personal basis between you and Dr. Luria, or with a staff member in his office. He will cover this in detail during your consultation.

Are the results permanent?

Your abdomen should remain in its post tummy tuck state for years to come so long as you do not gain a significant amount of weight or get pregnant. If you do gain weight you might cause the abdominal muscles to stretch apart. And, of course, time and gravity may eventually take their toll on your body.
