When do I need a Tummy Tuck?

A question often asked is when is the best time to get a Tummy Tuck and when is liposuction appropriate?

A Tummy tuck is indicated when there is an excess amount of loose skin. This is generally due to weight loss and/or following pregnancy, after which there is also a separation of the abdominal muscles. The TT will flatten the abdomen by tightening the abs and removing the excess skin. It often is a part of a Mommy Makeover, which usually also includes breast surgery as well as a BBL.

When there is relatively good skin elasticity and localized fat, liposuction is appropriate. This is a smaller and less invasive procedure. The postop recuperation is also a bit faster.

Whichever is the right procedure, the results are usually very satisfactory and is associated with very high patient satisfaction.
