Extra skin and fat hanging from the midriff can cause you dissatisfaction with your body. Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery removes the excess abdominal fat and sagging skin to reveal a flatter tummy and more defined waist.

The only way to know if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck is to consult an experienced plastic surgeon. To schedule a free cosmetic consultation in Lone Tree, please call Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery at (720) 457-4471. You may also want to view our Before & After Gallery online!

Tummy Tuck Cosmetic Outcomes

Although your result is unique to your cosmetic goals, generally a tummy tuck improves the appearance of the abdominal area by addressing:

  • Lax, separated abdominal muscles
  • Sagging abdominal skin
  • Excess fat around the abdomen

Many women choose a tummy tuck because of the ways pregnancy, aging and weight fluctuations can change the contours of the body. If you have gained weight and then lost weight, you may be unhappy with the sagging skin that has resulted. Or, if you have been pregnant before, the weight gain and skin stretching that occurs can leave drooping excess abdominal skin. With a tummy tuck, you can regain flatter, tighter abdominal skin and reduce the excess fat around your waist and abdomen. A tummy tuck is often part of a mommy makeover, which generally also includes liposuction and a breast enhancement procedure.

Men can also achieve a flatter abdominal area with tummy tuck surgery. Removing the extra skin and fat can reveal more defined, masculine body contours.

To enhance the definition of the waist, abs, hips and overall abdominal area, a tummy tuck procedure is sometimes combined with liposuction to remove isolated deposits of fat.

How to Prepare for Your Tummy Tuck Consultation

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for You?

If you are unhappy with your abdominal appearance, then a tummy tuck may be right for you. Feeling ashamed or embarrassed about your midriff can affect your self-esteem and confidence. Getting a tummy tuck can allow you to rejuvenate the more youthful aspects of your body contours.

The only way to know for sure if a tummy tuck is capable of achieving the goals you have in mind is to meet with one of our experienced plastic surgeons. Together, you can discuss aspects of tummy tuck candidacy including:

  • Your overall health and medical history
  • The specific body characteristics with which you are dissatisfied
  • The result you want to see from plastic surgery
  • Whether any other procedures are better suited to your goals
