Is a Tummy Tuck Part of a Mommy Makeover?

After you have a baby, you may face some unwanted body changes. That’s where a mommy makeover comes in. A mommy makeover pairs multiple surgical procedures to reduce, tighten, and contour loose skin and unwanted fat. One of these surgeries is usually a tummy tuck. It can help you achieve a flatter midsection and a smaller waistline. Let’s take a closer look at what a tummy tuck entails and whether or not you may benefit from it.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Also known as abdominoplasty surgery, a tummy tuck can help you get rid of loose skin and stretched abdominal wall muscles. During the procedure, Dr. Gonyon will make an incision at your bikini line, right between your hip bones. Then, he’ll lift the skin and fat away from your abdominal wall. 

Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Gonyon may recommend liposuction with your tummy tuck. The tummy tuck will remove excess skin and tighten your muscles while liposuction will contour your body and allow you to enjoy more dramatic results. If you’d like, he can also perform liposuction on your thighs, hips, buttocks, arms and even under your chin.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Many patients report that a tummy tuck makes them feel youthful and more confident. 

Good Candidates for a Tummy Tuck

If you’re bothered by excess skin and fatty tissue in your abdomen area after giving birth, a tummy tuck may be a great option. It can help you achieve the pre-baby tummy you may desire. You should be in good health and be realistic with your expectations. Additionally, it’s important that you commit to a healthy lifestyle after the procedure. Dr. Gonyon discourages this treatment if you wish to have more children. A consultation is a great way to determine if you could benefit from a tummy tuck.
