Due to pregnancy, massive weight loss, and/or aging, many individuals experience a loss of elasticity in the abdominal area and are unable to achieve a flatter midsection. If you have exhausted natural means of weight loss such as diet and exercise only to find that you cannot reach your desired outcome, you may be an ideal candidate for tummy tuck surgery. A qualified Chicago plastic surgeon can help you reach a more slender body contour with this procedure.

What is tummy tuck surgery?

During the tummy tuck procedure (“abdominoplasty”), excess fat and skin is removed and muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened. Those that have undergone a tummy tuck, gain a firmer and flatter abdominal appearance.

Typically, a long incision in the lower abdomen is made from hipbone to hipbone in order to separate the skin from the underlying muscle. Your Chicago plastic surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscle, pull the skin down, make a new opening for the belly button, and trim away excess skin.

A tummy tuck can be performed alone, but it is usually done with liposuction to enhance the results. Women who wish to regain their pre-pregnancy body may wish to inquire about breast augmentation. Additionally, be sure to view before and after tummy tuck photos to see examples of patient results.

Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery

The average cost of abdominoplasty surgery in Chicago is $18,350. This does not include the anesthesia or surgery center fees. Please consult with your Chicago tummy tuck surgeon for a more accurate final cost.
