New Tummy Tuck Before and After Photos

Tummy Tuck After

A frequent topic of conversation is how to find a good cosmetic surgeon. Maybe what patients really want to know is how can they can get the result they want. Perhaps one of the best ways to judge your possible result is to look at un-retouched Before and After photos. Most surgeons develop an “aesthetic style” or a particular way of doing a procedure that reflects how the patient looks after recovery. Keeping in mind that not all patients desire the same look following surgery, Before and After photos are a nice way to see your options. Certainly there are other important criteria to use to find the right cosmetic surgeon for you. Tops on the list is credentials, so look specifically for Board Certification from the American Society for Plastic Surgeons. A quick search here, will tell you if your prospective surgeon is Board Certified by the ASPS.

Last year 127,967 Abdominoplasty surgery or the Tummy Tuck procedure were done, again landing it the TOP 5 most requested cosmetic surgeries. The most common complaint from patients seeking surgery was loss of muscle and skin tone due to pregnancy or weight gain/loss resulting in what is sometimes called muffin top. Often surgery is required to repair these changes when exercise and diet have failed. My patients report great satisfaction after having this tummy nipntuck. It is also one of the common procedures when combined with breast restoration that is referred to as the “Mommy Makeover.” I recommend doing each procedure separately to insure proper healing and minimizing complications that might arise when doing both at the same time. Mommy Makeovers have become more popular in recent years as more women no longer accept the physical changes that are sometimes the residual result from pregnancy.

    Dr. Bashioum replies to H.N. “Thank you for your comment. For the best result, patients should be within their range for ideal weight according to height. Tummy tuck surgery is not a weight reduction surgery, but rather a procedure to tighten abdominal muscles and repair stretched skin due to pregnancy or repair skin laxity due to extreme weight loss. I believe that patients find recovery an easier process when they are physically fit and manage to maintain their goal weight prior to considering surgery. Sounds like you are on your way, so keep up the good work and you may find you don’t even need surgery!”
