Am I a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


The tummy tuck is a very well-known procedure in Maryland and across the country. That's great, but with popularity comes certain misconceptions. At Bella Cosmetic Surgery, we work hard to ensure that your desired procedure is right for you.

Not every patient is a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Dr. Chiaramonte will work with you to find a treatment path that leads you to your cosmetic goals.

You are an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck if you:

  • Are in sound overall health and have no active infections
  • Are at or near your ideal bodyweight
  • Are concerned with abdominal muscles loosened during pregnancy or weight loss
  • Wish to remove love handles or a protruding abdomen
  • Have persistent stretch marks you want to permanently remove

The tummy tuck is particularly helpful for women who have recently undergone pregnancy, often as part of a mommy makeover. But male patients can also benefit from the procedure.

If you live in or around Maryland and you're considering a tummy tuck, please call Bella Cosmetic Surgery today at 301-567-6767 for a consultation.
