At Bella Cosmetic Surgery, our philosophy of cosmetic surgery is that we believe in taking an individualized approach to each procedure and that you should be informed before making any major decisions regarding your body. That’s why if you live in the Maryland and Washington D.C. area and you’re considering undergoing an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck procedure, it’s important to understand what makes a good candidate so that you can achieve maximum results with minimal risk.
Tummy tucks are not intended for individuals looking to lose weight. It’s a specially-designed procedure to address the surplus fat and tissue in the middle and lower abdomen, especially if diet and exercise have yielded no results. You are a successful candidate for a tummy tuck if you:
- Are in healthy shape but with problematic fatty areas in your stomach
- Are at or near your ideal body weight
- Have had multiple pregnancies and your stomach muscle and skin have lost elasticity
- Are a man with an abdominal protrusion
- Are looking to eliminate love handles
Dr. Michael Chiaramonte is a board-certified plastic surgeon who will go over all the issues regarding the tummy tuck procedure in your consultation. We believe that anyone who decides to enhance their body should have the knowledge to make the best decisions for their body goals.
If you’re interested in learning more about the tummy tuck procedure, contact Bella Cosmetic Surgery at (301) 567-6767 to schedule a consultation. We happily serve those who live in Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia, including Alexandria and Fairfax.
