Tummy tuck could be the only answer for those people who suffer with loose skin around the midriff, after weight loss or due to hereditary factors.
This is according to Dr W Miles, a plastic surgeon practicing in America, who explained that excess skin and fat around the midriff can unfortunately be a very common problem for many people – usually either after pregnancy or in individuals who lose a large amount of weight in a short time, including gastric bypass patients. This occurrence can also be hereditary, and many people find that no amount of exercise or dieting will lose the excess weight.
According to a new study conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients that undergo the cosmetic procedures liposuction and/or abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck) benefit from higher levels of self-esteem and a better quality of life.
The study was included in the April issue of ‘Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’. The results found that those undergoing both liposuction and abdominoplasty reported the best benefits, despite the fact that these surgeries take longer to recover from and can be more painful than other procedures.

Kelle Treadwell, 38, opted for abdominoplasty – aka tummy tuck surgery – following the birth of her two children. Despite more than five years of trying to get her stomach back into shape, she was left with a ridge where the muscle wall wouldn’t go back into place.
“I’ve tried over the past five years, but I can’t get the muscle wall in my stomach to come back,” she said.
“I can’t lose anything around the waist, despite diet and exercise. I just don’t feel good and strong and healthy. I’m not planning to wear a bikini afterwards,” she added.
Treadwell is just one example of the many people opting for surgery to look and feel good about themselves, and figures suggest that demand will continue to rise over the next few years.
