How do plastic surgeons measure the success of a plastic surgery procedure?  For our practice, the answer lies in patient satisfaction.  That is, whether or not a patient would do it all over again, if given the chance.  Plastic Surgery community site, RealSelf®, tracks patient satisfaction by asking its users to vote on which procedures were “Worth It” for them.  Assigning each procedure a Worth It rating out of 100 points, RealSelf sheds light on which procedures patients would recommend to their family and friends.

And, as it turns out, one procedure stood out to us as having a remarkably high degree of satisfied patients!  According to the most recent RealSelf data available, users have awarded tummy tuck surgery a remarkable 95% Worth It rating!  A trusted and effective way to achieve a slimmer, trimmer waistline, tummy tuck surgery continues to be one of the most popular procedures in the US.  Want to find out what it’s really all about?  Read on!

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Professionally known as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck surgery works to achieve a slimmer, flatter waistline.  This is achieved through the removal of excess fat and skin and the tightening of underlying muscles.  Not intended as a weight loss solution, the best tummy tuck candidates are those with areas of stubborn fat and excess skin that have not responded to diet or exercise.

Tummy tuck surgery is also popular among women with stretched skin following childbirth.  An important component of a Mommy Makeover procedure, many choose to combine a tummy tuck with a breast procedure – usually a breast lift, breast augmentation or breast reduction.  Besides achieving a slimmer, trimmer figure, many women also report feeling younger and more confident as well.
