Boost your confidence with smooth, firm abs.

While regular exercise and a healthy diet help with weight loss, they’re often unsuccessful in removing stubborn fat in the abdomen. Loose, sagging skin in this area may also be an unwanted result of significant weight loss, pregnancy or Cesarean section delivery. A tummy tuck firms and smooths the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat, and tightening ab muscles.

Treatments such as liposuction can remove stubborn, excess abdominal fat, but it does not address the issue of loose skin. The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons to remove excess skin and restore weakened or separated muscles to create smoother, firmer abs.

In most instances, both liposuction and a tummy tuck are performed in the same surgery. For those who have excess fat and skin in the lower abdomen, a mini-abdominoplasty is an option to target this specific area.

Following a tummy tuck, Crystal Clinic patients commonly express how thrilled they are to have a flat stomach and smaller waistline. They no longer need to hide tummy bulges under baggy clothing, which expands their fashion choices and improves self-confidence. Stronger stomach muscles also result in better posture and reduced back pain. 

The procedure is commonly recommended for a person who has lost a great deal of weight, had multiple pregnancies or a Cesarean section, which resulted in excess skin and fat around the waist, stretch marks and weakened ab muscles. 

The best way to know if a tummy tuck is right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, the details of the procedure and post-procedure expectations, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have. 

The first step is to schedule an appointment. Please be assured that scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
