Request Consultation

Help us help you!

We want you to get the most out of your consultation. If at all possible, it is best to make arrangements for small children to stay home rather than having them join us for your appointments.

A tummy tuck from one of our Phoenix plastic surgeons, can be a wonderful way to look and feel your very best. However, this procedure is not right for everyone. During your initial consultation, our board-certified plastic surgeons will listen to your concerns and fully assess your frame. With this information, they can help you determine if a tummy tuck is the best procedure to help you reach your goals.

Tummy Tuck Candidates

Your tummy tuck candidacy will depend on your anatomical features. In addition, good candidates from this procedure should be:

  • Close to their ideal weight
  • Not planning on becoming pregnant in the future
  • Nonsmokers in generally good health
  • Free of heart disease, cancer, lung disease, and diabetes

A tummy tuck can greatly assist with body contouring after weight loss, but it is not, by itself, a good method for losing weight. If you are significantly over weight, it is best to drop excess pounds through diet and exercise or procedures such as bariatric surgery prior to having this procedure.

The best way to determine if you are a candidate for tummy tuck surgery is through a comprehensive, one-on-one consultation with one of out surgeons.
