Is a Tummy Tuck Worth It?

Pregnancy, aging, or the effects of major weight loss can cause changes to the abdominal area that diet and exercise cannot reverse. A tummy tuck can restore the abdomen by tightening skin, removing fat, and repairing loose muscles. While this procedure does involve more downtime than many others, most people find this more than worth it when they see their results. 


*Individual Results May Vary

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Dr. Stile has performed over 2,700 tummy tuck procedures, more than any other solo practitioner in America. He performs tummy tuck procedures on people who have loose skin and stubborn deposits of fat around the abdomen. To create a tight stomach, he also repairs the rectus muscle separation (diastasis), core abdominal muscles that can become loosened during pregnancy or weight gain. 

How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?

Dr. Stile will create a low incision below the bikini line. This allows him to remove loose skin and fat, then tighten the remaining skin into a smooth, tight stomach. Before closing the incision, he will also repair the rectus muscles. These muscles become separated during pregnancy or when someone gains a significant amount of weight. Once these have separated, no amount of diet or exercise will give you the firm abdomen you want. After their repair, you will have a stronger core and a flatter stomach. 

Is a Tummy Tuck Worth It?

A tummy tuck can be an expensive procedure with significant downtime. This may raise the question of whether having the procedure is worth it. A tummy tuck has many benefits that make this procedure more than worth the recovery time and cost


Long-Lasting Results

Tummy tuck results can last indefinitely for people who maintain a fairly stable weight. The removed fat will not return, although remaining fat cells can change in size. 

Immediate Improvement

Even with normal post-surgical swelling, you can immediately see how much loose skin and fat have been removed from the abdominal area. Seeing your results right away will help you feel confident in your choice and reassure you of the benefits you can enjoy. 

Confidence and Freedom

You will feel freer to wear anything you want and not feel self-conscious about your abdomen. Your scar from the tummy tuck sits so low on the abdomen that even a bikini will completely cover it. Without the visible sagging belly, you will find that clothes fit better and you look better. 

What is Recovery Like From a Tummy Tuck?

After surgery, people with physically active jobs will need about a month of recovery time before returning to work. People with low-activity jobs may return sooner with Dr. Stile’s approval. Strenuous activity needs to wait at least six weeks, and then only if you feel comfortable. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

If you have loose abdominal skin and stubborn fat, you may be a good candidate. Ideal candidates are in good health, do not smoke, and have no history of blood clots or bleeding problems.
