Is a tummy tuck an appropriate weight loss solution?

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedures can help Dallas patients who are having trouble exercising because of excess abdominal skin and fat.

When patients lose weight or have children, they may develop a pannus: a hanging apron of skin and fat. During a tummy tuck surgery, I remove this skin and fat to sculpt a leaner, more attractive contour. The aesthetic benefits are immediate.

Without this pannus, Dallas patients who have been struggling with their weight may feel more comfortable working out. They may also become more committed to an exercise routine thanks to the immediate improvement to their appearance that the surgery has provided.

Tummy tuck surgery alone isn’t a weight loss solution for Dallas patients. The procedure focuses on flattening the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and it works to tighten the muscles in your abdominal wall. Still, the related benefits that a tummy tuck offers can help with weight loss and can encourage an ongoing healthier lifestyle.
