Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck procedure is sought by many in order to obtain a more attractive-looking stomach. By removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightening the abdominal muscles, Dr. Montfort can create a midsection that is flat and more toned.

Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. This procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen and create more youthful curves. To enhance the results, the scar from this procedure is hidden below the bikini line.

Although a tummy tuck may offer a number of benefits, it is crucial to note that it cannot substitute for diet and exercise. The results of a tummy tuck are permanent but may be affected by substantial weight gain or loss. Also, this procedure is not guaranteed to remove all of the stretch marks around the abdomen.

Tummy Tuck Surgery

I want to lose all this skin

You may be a candidate for a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with Dr. Montfort, if you have loose or sagging abdominal wall skin that is frequently associated with abnormal relaxation of the anterior abdominal wall muscles (often secondary to multiple pregnancies or prior surgery). You may also desire a tummy tuck if you are unable to tighten your abdominal wall skin with exercise. An abdominoplasty is intended to give the patient a smoother, flatter abdomen.

Women who plan future pregnancies should wait to have an abdominoplasty, because vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy.
