3 Reasons to Get a Tummy Tuck

Whether you’ve just given birth, lost a significant amount of weight, or simply don’t want to deal with loose, sagging, excess skin around your abdomen anymore, a tummy tuck could give you the look you desire. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can deliver a flat, toned appearance to your stomach and abdomen when diet and exercise alone may not accomplish that.

At Burgess Plastic Surgery, board-certified cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon Dr. Elisa A. Burgess is dedicated to helping you achieve your dreams of natural beauty and self-confidence. She is one of the Portland area’s premier plastic surgeons. Here are three reasons why a tummy tuck from Dr. Burgess may be the right move for you.

You Recently Gave Birth

Pregnancy expands your stomach to create room for your growing child. For some women, this isn’t an issue as their stomachs naturally regain their pre-pregnancy shape after they give birth. Other women, however, may be left with loose, excess skin and damaged abdominal muscles. You may also have stretch marks or C-section scars that you don’t want to see the light of day.

These issues may not be fixable through diet and exercise. A tummy tuck from Dr. Burgess, however, could correct these problems and help you regain your pre-pregnancy body. The procedure won’t just improve the appearance of your stomach. It can also repair abdominal muscles that were stretched or torn during pregnancy.

You’ve Lost a Significant Amount of Weight

Substantial weight loss is something you should absolutely be proud of. It is the product of your hard work, and the choice you made to change your diet and exercise routine will help you live a happier, longer, healthier life. However, after weight loss, you may be left with loose skin and excess fat deposits that your lifestyle changes can’t eliminate.

This can make people feel uncomfortable. It can serve as a reminder of how your body used to look. It can also prevent you from fully actualizing the benefits of losing all that weight. A tummy tuck will eliminate that excess skin, and Dr. Burgess can perform liposuction as part of the procedure to remove remaining fat deposits in your abdomen.

You’re Self-Conscious About the Appearance of Your Stomach

A larger, bulging stomach can negatively impact your self-confidence and make you feel embarrassed during romantic, social, and professional interactions.

A tummy tuck can help build self confidence, and patients may become more comfortable in their own skin.
