Some people cannot achieve their goals of a flat and well-toned abdomen, even with exercise and weight control. Even those who have a normal body weight can have a protruding, loose, or sagging abdomen. This is most commonly caused by factors such as:

  • Aging
  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Prior Surgery
  • Fluctuations in weight

If you would like to remove excess fat and skin from your abdomen, Dr. Hogan can provide a tummy tuck. In addition to removing excess fat and skin, a tummy tuck, which is also called abdominoplasty, can tighten weakened muscles. This creates a smoother and firmer abdomen, enhancing your overall body contours and boosting your self-esteem.

Keep in mind that a tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or exercise. A tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks, but they may be improved if they are in areas of excess skin that will be removed. If you are planning substantial weight loss, we advise that you postpone your tummy tuck.
