4 Problems Tummy Tucks Help Fix after Weight Loss

Woman in BlueAlthough a tummy tuck is not a method for losing weight, it can be a popular procedure if you have reached your target weight but struggle with loose skin. Here’s a look at four ways a tummy tuck can help after you meet your weight loss goals.*

1. Remove Excess Skin

When you slim down and shed pounds, your skin isn’t always able to contract to fit your new body quickly enough. When this happens, excess skin can hang, causing discomfort, skin irritation and embarrassment. During a tummy tuck, loose skin from the abdomen is removed and the remaining skin is tightened over the abdomen.*

2. Repair Weakened Abdominal Muscles

Even when you lose weight, your abdominal muscles can remain separated and weakened due to years of being stretched. These muscles can only be repaired surgically, and a tummy tuck addresses these lax muscles in addition to removing and tightening the overlying skin.* Strengthening the abdominal wall contributes to the slimmer, firmer appearance of your stomach after a tummy tuck.*

3. May Motivate Long-Term Weight Loss

When you look good, you feel good. In fact, a recent study shows that having a tummy tuck to bring your weight loss success full-circle increases the likelihood that you’ll maintain your healthier new weight in the long run.*

4. Improve Self-Esteem

Loose, saggy skin that remains after significant weight loss can detract from your thinner figure and keep you from feeling proud of your new body. A tummy tuck can be a great way to finally accentuate your new waistline and show off your weight loss success.*
