In 2017, tummy tucks regained their standing in the Top 5 Cosmetic Surgery Procedures in the United States, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Almost 130,000 people underwent tummy tucks last year. This procedure is ideal for removing excess fat and skin on the abdomen. It can also repair stretched and separated abdominal muscles, a condition known as diastasis recti, which commonly occurs during pregnancy when the muscles and abdominal cavity stretch.

How much do you know about tummy tuck surgery? Also called abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin around your abdominal area. You may feel like no matter how many crunches you do or how many runs you go on, this puffiness simply will not shrink. It is this type of stubborn fat that a tummy tuck addresses. The only way to know if you are a good candidate is to visit our board-certified plastic surgeons for a one-on-one consultation.
There are several different tummy tuck procedures that are in use today. The right type of tummy tuck procedure depends on your specific needs and goals. During your consultation in our Denver-area offices, we will determine the best tummy tuck procedure to use in order to best suit your unique situation and goals.
At Grossman Plastic Surgery, our Denver plastic surgeons want to ensure that every procedure you undergo is appropriate for your specific needs. This means not performing more surgery than you require. One of the best examples of this dynamic is the mini-tummy tuck.
A mini-tummy tuck is designed to tighten loose abdominal muscles and remove excess skin below the belly button. As such, it’s appropriate if you don’t have any cosmetic issues above your belly button that you wish to address.
Undergoing bariatric surgery or any other type of weight loss surgery can be an important step in taking control of your health. After your weight loss surgery, you should be proud of your accomplishments and encouraged to maintain your results by altering your diet and exercise regimen. However, this surgery is also often accompanied by certain aesthetic drawbacks.
