Who Should Get A Tummy Tuck?

Dr. Schwartz is one of the premier Dallas tummy tuck surgeons and we’ve worked hard to earn the trust of our patients. While there are a few cases where a tummy tuck might not be appropriate, it’s an excellent option for many different types of people. Some of the most common situations where people get a tummy tuck are:

  • Postpartum – Only mothers know how hard pregnancy can be on their bodies. After the birth, your stomach muscles may have become stretched and are covered with loose skin and stretch marks. During the tummy tuck procedure, we will actually suture your abdominal muscles back together to help you get that nice, flat stomach you used to have.
  • Weight loss – Another situation where a tummy tuck may be a good option is for people who have lost a significant amount of weight and have lots of excess skin. In this procedure, the precise amount of skin must be removed to achieve a natural look without being too tight.


We treat each of our clients with incredible respect and Dr. Schwartz considers every procedure a work of art. If you’re considering a tummy tuck, go with the best – call Dr. Schwartz today
