Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Tummy tucks have been gaining a lot of popularity over the past few years after various celebrities have received them and have seen the great results they can provide. For people who are dealing with excess skin and fat around their midsection, we perform tummy tucks at our Phoenix, Arizona plastic surgery office.


During the tummy tuck procedure, excess skin around the stomach area is removed, the underlying stomach muscles are surgically tightened, and remaining skin is reshaped around the abdomen. The results of the tummy tuck are great for women who have had multiple pregnancies or other individuals who have lost a large amount of weight.

Unlike liposuction, a tummy tuck removes excess skin, which means there is usually a scar associated with the procedure. Fortunately, Gawley Plastic Surgery surgeons can place the scar so that it is concealed by most clothing bottoms.

For most tummy tuck patients, the greatest benefit of the procedure is a boosted self-confidence. Excess skin and fat can make you feel bigger than you actually are, and it can prevent you from wearing the clothes you want. After your tummy tuck, you will be able to wear more shapely clothes and you will have a body contour you can be proud of.

If you live in the Phoenix, Arizona area and have been considering a tummy tuck, please contact one of our Phoenix, Scottsdale area cosmetic surgeons today to schedule an initial consultation at which time you can learn all about your procedure and what results you can expect.
