Why get a tummy tuck?

The abdomen naturally tends to loosen and pooch as a part of aging, after a pregnancy, or when we gain weight. Unfortunately, it does not naturally reduce very easily. And sometimes, sagging, loose skin remains after we lose weight. If you have tried a healthy diet, targeted exercise or other procedures, but this trouble area continues to persist, it can be frustrating. An abdominoplasty in Las Vegas directly targets these concerns and dramatically improves your abdominal area. This procedure can also be done with liposuction to address extra fat pockets that you haven’t been able to reduce on your own.


There are many benefits of abdominoplasty, which is why it is such a popular procedure.

  • A more attractive abdominal area
  • A flattened abdomen
  • A shaped, toned and contoured stomach and waist
  • Surgically tightens weakened muscles
  • Provides abdominal support
  • Can alleviate back pain and improve posture
  • Removes up to 10 pounds of excess skin
  • Can provide a well-defined stomach
  • Can eliminate stretch marks
  • Can help lower your risk of health concerns such as heart disease or sleep apnea
  • Reduces stress on the stomach muscles which can lead to a hernia
  • Reduces urinary incontinence

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that targets stubborn fat and loose skin on the abdomen. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the muscle below is tightened with sutures. This firms and shapes the waist and tummy, giving an attractive, contoured appearance.

Getting a tummy tuck after pregnancy or weight loss

After pregnancy or significant weight loss, the belly skin can hang down--a condition also known as pannus stomach or “mother’s apron.” When this occurs, the belly and fat can often hang below the genitals. This condition can cause back pain and make proper hygiene difficult. There is a specific abdominoplasty done to address this called a panniculectomy. The panniculectomy removes the hanging skin and fat to improve personal hygiene, prevent infections and alleviate pain. Because it is a medical necessity for many patients, it is often covered by medical insurance.

Am I a Candidate?

During your consultation, Dr. Parker will examine you and discuss your concerns and your vision of how you want your abdomen to look to determine whether a tummy tuck is the right procedure for you. Patients in Las Vegas who meet the following requirements may be ideal candidates for a tummy tuck:

  • Are at a stable weight you feel you can maintain.
