Are you considering a "tummy tuck"? (That is the popular term for abdominal surgery that can give you a flatter, firmer stomach. )
I'm Dr. Robert Brueck MD FACS and I will show you how a tummy tuck can improve how you look, and how you feel about yourself. The consultation with is free.
Will a flatter, firmer abdomen help you feel better about yourself? You probably ask yourself that question a lot if you are carrying around excess flab and skin from pregnancy or successful weight loss.
Frankly, exercise is the preferred way to address the problem. But, if even the most active exercise doesn't remove that excessive flab, you might consider a "tummy tuck."
I say consider because a "tummy tuck" may not be right for you.
In this video from TV's American Health Journal, I explain tummy tucks and their benefits:
During your free, confidential consultation with me, I will examine your specific situation and discuss with you if you should be a candidate for a "tummy tuck.
Besides removing flab, a "tummy tuck" also strengthens weakened or separated muscles. A "tummy tuck" can be done along with liposuction. Or liposuction may be an alternative to a "tummy tuck" if localized fat is the sole reason for the problem.
Incidentally, the flab problem can be the result of heredity, multiple pregnancies, previous surgeries, significant weight fluctuations or spinal abnormalities affecting posture.
"Tummy tucks" often are done as part of a "mommy makeover", a term for plastic surgery that removes excess skin and/or fat left over from pregnancy. Sometimes more extensive surgery is required after bariatric surgery has resulted in massive weight loss and an extreme amount of remaining skin.
In the video that follows, Dr. Brueck discusses aspects of post-bariatric surgery:
