For Best Results of Tummy Tuck

Additional procedures that may enhance the result of tummy tuck are Liposuction, Breast Procedures, or Thigh Lift. Mommy makeovers usually include multiple operations.  Brazilian “butt enhancement” can be done at the same time to provide best body contours. Arm reduction or brachiaplasty is also common. 

Each person’s anatomy is unique and their result is as well. You cannot expect to achieve an identical result as seen on another individual. Additionally, one key to a satisfying result is realistic expectations.

Not Happy With Tummy

Dear Tammyandshawn,

I am so sorry to hear about your aesthetic journey.  The best solution is to try to sit down with the surgeon or his/her aesthetic coordinator to work this out.  Your outcome can be improved but if you have to seek treatment by another surgeon that will incur more cost to you.  Best wishes.

I am sorry to hear about your concerns after tummy tuck surgery. Best to address your concerns/goals directly with your plastic surgeon, in a calm and constructive fashion, preferably in front of a full-length mirror. Working together you will come up with a plan to improve your outcome. Best wishes.
