I go to the gym 5 days a week for the last 2 years, i want to try and get my stomach skin removed and possibly the extra skin on my chest. I was looking around to see the average cost and specifically, which procedure I would need.
I lost 130 lbs and have extra skin on my stomach area, would this need a tummy tuck or is there another procedure? (Photos)

Possible tummy tuck for lower abdomen
I would agree that a mini tummy tuck would be adequate as the abdominal profile of the upper abdomen is excellent. In the mini tuck the tissue below the belly button is removed and limited muscle tightening is done. This should be enough with a quicker recovery time and more limited scar as compared to a full tummy tuck. The cost will depend on the surgeon.
The area on the chest can be dealt with simultaneously and will require a modified gynaecomastia procedure but will lead to a scar at the level of the fold under the breast.
Scar management after this is a key.
Hope this answers your questions.

Hello, Thank you so much for your questions and pictures. The Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck is the operation consistent in the removal of the excess of skinand fat abdominal and in the correction of the flaccidity muscle. Best wishes!

Malibu tummy tuck
Thank you for your question. You would be a candidate for tummy tuck. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the tummy muscles. I invented the MALIBU tummy tuck. It gives a very natural looking tummy and belly button. In addition pain and recovery are significantly less versus traditional techniques. It is not uncommon for patients to take only Tylenol for pain after surgery.
