am i a candidate for a tummy tuck

There are four things that give you fullness of your abdomen and different ways to address them:

1. fat – fat can be either excised ( with a TT) or removed with liposuction

2. excess skin – despite the hype over skin tightening devices, most redundant skin requires surgical excision

3. weakness of the abdominal wall (diastasis) – often occurs because of pregnancy or dramatic weight changes and requires surgical tightening (part of a TT operation)

4. visceral fat ( fat around your intestine) – this is metabolically active fat and responds to diet and exericse. there is nothing surgical we can do for this.
