If you have lost a lot of weight over your lifetime or had multiple pregnancies, you may be left with loose skin and excess fat around your midsection.

A tummy tuck can improve the appearance of stretch marks to some extent, but it is not specifically designed to completely eliminate them. During a tummy tuck procedure, excess skin is removed from the abdominal area, which can also involve removing some stretch-marked skin. However, stretch marks located above the navel or outside the areas of skin removal may not be affected.
Yes, the abdominoplasty procedure is often combined with other body contouring procedures such as mommy makeovers, so if this route is of interest to you, Dr. Gill can discuss it during your appointment. She is also happy to discuss any other body sculpting treatments of interest, such as a thigh lift, an arm lift, a body lift, or breast surgery such as breast augmentation or breast lift.
