Whether caused by pregnancy or weight changes, loose skin and fat around the abdomen can make you want to hide your stomach. This problem will not resolve with diet or exercise. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty can give you a flatter abdomen and a slimmer figure

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Weight changes and skin stretching can result in an abdomen with sagging skin and accumulated fat. After pregnancy or weight loss, you may do your best to flatten your stomach on your own, but even the most active, healthy lifestyle cannot tighten loose skin or separated abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck removes this excess skin and fat, repairs the abdominal muscles, and repositions the belly button

Top 3 Reasons to Consider a Tummy Tuck

Beyond the obvious benefit of a flatter abdomen, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty has many other benefits. While you may not realize how much your sagging skin and fat affect you, you will notice the difference when it is gone.

Improve Your Health

Part of that sagging, loose abdomen can come from separated abdominal muscles. Stretching can pull these muscles apart, and exercise will not repair them. A tummy tuck can improve your posture, tighten your core muscles, and improve back pain. 

Feel More Confident

After a tummy tuck, you may feel slimmer and more confident in your clothes. Even if you do not reveal your transformed abdomen, others will notice that you stand straighter and look more self-assured. 

No More Holding Back

If you have avoided bathing suits and any occasion that required them, you may feel differently after your tummy tuck. Feel more comfortable swimming, exercising, or doing anything you want in any clothes you want. 

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed?

A tummy tuck is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips will perform your tummy tuck in our accredited El Paso Cosmetic Surgical Center. Depending on your goals and the problems to correct, they may recommend one of several types of tummy tucks. In general, a tummy tuck uses an incision made below the bikini line to remove excess skin and fat. The surgeon then repairs the abdominal muscles and relocates the belly button.

How Much Does a Tummy Tuck Cost?

Since we perform several types of tummy tucks, your cost will vary depending on which one works best for your needs. The average tummy tuck costs about $6000, but your estimate may be higher or lower. Schedule a consultation for an accurate estimate that includes all fees and associated costs. 

Am I a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

You may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you have loose skin and accumulated abdominal fat. Ideal candidates are close to their target weight but need help shaping the abdomen. Let your surgeon know if you plan to become pregnant in the future since this will affect your results. 

I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
