A tummy tuck flattens stomach; flatters profile

For people who have excess skin around the abdomen due to weight loss, bariatric surgery, pregnancy, aging or even genetics, abdominoplasty—also known as a tummy tuck—can help.

Gundersen Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics performs tummy tuck surgery to tighten, tone and trim the abdomen area. Excess fat and skin are surgically removed from the abdomen and the muscles are tightened.

Forget the embarrassment—benefits of plastic surgery is more than skin deep

With a growing number of people having procedures like tummy tucks, plastic surgery has become more socially acceptable. In addition, research shows positive benefits including:

  • Improved self-image and confidence. One study found that with realistic expectations, people who had plastic surgery got a boost of confidence following their procedures.
  • Being happier. Another study compared patients who had a procedure with those who considered plastic surgery but decided not to. Patients who underwent cosmetic surgery were happier and more satisfied with their lives than those who opted out.
  • Improved quality of life. When people look good and feel good, they are more likely to engage in activities, have a better social life, enjoy an improved sex life and live a healthier lifestyle.

If you or one of your patients would like to know more about abdominoplasty, schedule a confidential consultation.
