Tummy Tuck Surgery

frequently asked questions

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess skin and fat in the abdominal region and to tighten abdominal muscles that may have become stretched over time.
What is a tummy tuck? A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess skin and fat in the abdominal region and to tighten abdominal muscles that may have become stretched over time. It is commonly performed on women who wish to restore their abdominal region to its pre-pregnancy form or on individuals who have undergone massive weight loss.
What are the different types of tummy tuck procedures?
Denver plastic surgeon Dr. David Broadway will customize your tummy tuck to address your body type and aesthetic goals. Depending on your needs, Dr. Broadway may recommend:

Standard tummy tuck – This procedure is ideal for patients who need extensive tightening throughout the abdominal region. Excess fat and skin are removed and abdominal muscles are tightened. A standard tummy tuck leaves a scar from hip to hip and a smaller scar below the belly button.

Mini tummy tuck – This procedure is less extensive than a standard tummy tuck and is ideal if you only need to address issues below the belly button. Scarring after a mini tummy tuck is less extensive than after a standard tummy tuck.

Circumferential tummy tuck – This procedure is also called a body lift. It is a 360-degree tummy tuck that is commonly performed on individuals undergoing plastic surgery after weight loss.

Am I a candidate for a tummy tuck? Ideal tummy tuck candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Women should wait until they are done having children before undergoing a tummy tuck since future pregnancies may adversely impact the results. If you are planning on losing weight, you should wait to have the procedure until you have completed your weight loss. A tummy tuck is an effective procedure if you are looking to correct:
Stretched skin and loose abdominal muscles due to pregnancy
Reduced muscle tone and sagging skin in the abdominal region due to aging
Predisposition to excess skin and fatty deposits in the abdominal region
Your loose, hanging skin that occurs following gastric bypass surgery
