Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Let’s talk tummy troubles. Does your middle need a little help? The abdominal area is a common trouble spot. Aging, pregnancy, and weight loss all take their toll on the tummy, leaving loose skin, stretch marks, and excess fat. Often, the solution is a tummy tuck. Call today and ask us if this treatment could transform your tummy.

You May Need a Tummy Tuck If…

Do you need a tummy tuck? You may be a good candidate if:
• You have loose, stretched out abdominal skin
• You are unable to achieve a flat tummy with diet and exercise alone
• You have abdominal muscle separation
• You have poor skin elasticity
• You want to improve your abdominal appearance
• You are at a stable weight, close to your ideal
• You are in good health
• You are not planning any future pregnancies
Find out if you’re a good candidate by scheduling a personalized consultation with Dr. Mussat. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals for surgery, examine your body, and help you decide if a tummy tuck is your best option. If a tummy tuck isn’t the right choice for you, we’ll help you discover other options that meet your needs.

I Need to Lose Weight. Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck provides dramatic results, but it isn’t a weight loss treatment. It works best on patients that have already lost weight and are now at a stable weight, near or slightly above their ideal. If you need to lose weight, we can help with that too. We offer medically supervised weight loss to help you get ready for your tummy tuck.
Each patient is different and we offer a variety of weight loss options. We’ll help you choose one that meets your needs and aligns with your goals.
• HCG diets
• The Dukan Diet (physician developed)
• Weight loss prescription medications
By using a physician like Dr. Mussat as part of your weight loss journey you can ensure that you’re taking safe and effective steps to achieve your goals. We know losing weight is difficult and we’ll support you until you achieve success.
