Is a Tummy Tuck Worth It?

Schedule A Consultation

The answer is YES!

Researchers have run a couple of surveys and tummy tuck tops the “worth it” list from 93% of respondents.

They also add that social media has become one of the top resources that have helped people evaluate the procedure and how it was perceived.

They urged plastic surgeons to consider the “worth it” score alongside satisfaction scores often reported in literature.


You’ll start seeing incredible results after about three months, and by six months your body should be drastically different from what it used to look like before the procedure was done on them (sometimes even staying flattered up until one year).

Since these treatments can absolutely revolutionize how people see our bodies–and with good reason!–they’re considered an investment worth making not just for yourself but also other aspects such as self-esteem or overall appearance.

Make sure to maintain your diet and exercise after your treatment.

Why is a Tummy Tuck Worth It?

Results Show in Three Months

The first few results from a tummy tuck are usually hidden by swelling and the inability to stand, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). But most patients can stand upright in a week or two.

It is important to know that the results of a stomach procedure will be different for every patient. Some patients may notice changes after three months and become very impressed by their bodies’ rejuvenation, while others need six or more before they are satisfied with how things turned out.

This depends on many factors including what kind of scarring there was as well as size constraints involved in removing more than just skin from certain areas around your body like muscle mass (if applicable).


Tightens Loose Skin

Many patients consider tummy tucks after losing weight because of the extra loose skin on their stomachs. The main job of a surgery like this one is removing and/or tightening this excess tissue, which can make you look smaller than before due to how it hangs over your clothes or extends into different areas when inflated with air at various sizes depending upon what’s needed for each patient’s individual situation.

Improves Posture

The ASPS reports that after a tummy tuck, patients reported an improvement in back pain and posture.

With the tightening of loose skin and fat around their stomach area as well as better core abdominal muscle support from performing this procedure on oneself.

Improves Muscle Tone

Subcutaneous fat can be hard to remove, but not impossible. A tummy tuck will target the excess skin in your stomach and get rid of it while also improving muscle tone around your midsection by revealing a definition you never knew existed.


For most patients, the pros of a tummy tuck outweigh any cons. This procedure will increase confidence.
