The muscle repair achieved by a tummy tuck has even shown to improve some cases of hernias or stress urinary incontinence in patients.

Both men and women with excess skin and fat on their abdomen are good candidates for a tummy tuck at DermASAP. Strong candidates for a tummy tuck include those who:
Ideal candidates should be willing to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle in order to maintain the results of their tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck usually takes four to five hours to complete. It’s recommended to refrain from strenuous physical activity for several weeks after a tummy tuck. A full recovery can be made in six weeks.
Your procedure requires one main incision to complete, with another made around the belly button if necessary. The primary incision sits low on your pelvis, between your hip bones. Scarring will be minimal and most likely easily concealed under clothing or a bathing suit.
If you’re unhappy with your loose, hanging, or protruding abdomen, a tummy tuck can restore a tight, healthy tone to your stomach. To learn more, call DermASAP today to schedule a consultation or book online.
