Redefine Your Figure with a Tummy Tuck After Weight Loss

Losing a significant amount of weight is an amazing accomplishment. You feel lighter and more energetic, and you may even feel like you have a new lease on life. However, all that hard work can leave behind excess skin and tissue around the midsection that masks your weight loss accomplishments. A tummy tuck can reveal your hard-won efforts and give you the incredible transformation you desired.

How Weight Loss Affects the Abdominal Area

Carrying around extra body weight can take its toll on your body, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the midsection. Abdominal skin and tissue will become overstretched and saggy, and once this process has started it’s very difficult to correct on your own. Even if you’ve managed to lose a considerable amount of weight and are happy with your health and the number on the scale, you may still be left with excess skin that just won’t respond to diet and exercise.

How a Tummy Tuck Can Improve Abdominal Contour

A tummy tuck can help to correct this problem by removing the excess tissue and tightening the remaining tissues for a smoother, more toned abdomen. This can be an especially welcome change for those who have lost a large amount of weight and are now dealing with hanging skin folds and persistent fatty deposits. A tummy tuck can also help to correct stomach muscle laxity, which can occur with weight loss.

How Tummy Tuck Surgery is Performed

The tummy tuck procedure can be tailored to the needs of the individual patient. For most patients seeking to improve abdominal contour after weight loss, the surgeon will make a large incision across the lower abdomen between the hipbones. If there is a significant amount of loose skin and tissue to be removed after major weight loss, the surgeon may also make a vertical incision up the center of the stomach and/or wrap around the back of the hips (sometimes called “belt lipectomy” or “extended abdominoplasty”). The surgeon will pull together the abdominal muscles, remove any excess skin and fat, reposition the belly button, and tighten the waistline so that it is much flatter and firmer. Finally, the surgeon will close the incisions.

How a Tummy Tuck Could Benefit You After Major Weight Loss

Major weight loss, especially of 100 pounds or more, can significantly impact the appearance of your waistline. It is not uncommon for affected individuals to have loose, excess skin that hangs down from the abdomen. This extra skin can make it very difficult for you to maintain good hygiene, fit comfortably in your clothing, and feel confident in your body.

Getting a tummy tuck could change all of that. The surgery will remove all the excess hanging skin, tighten the abdomen, and restore flatter, smoother contours. Body contouring after major weight loss can improve your abdominal area and even your thighs and upper arms where desired (these are additional procedures that may be performed alongside your tummy tuck). You will feel more comfortable in your clothes and your own skin, and you will likely have a newfound confidence that you can carry with you through the rest of your life.

A tummy tuck could improve the appearance of your abdomen after weight loss and give you the confidence you need to show off your new body. Schedule a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Mouchantat to learn more about how this procedure could benefit you.
