How to tighten your belly ?

Candidate for Abdominal Contouring

From your photos it appears that you will benefit from an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

It will be very important to perform a through physical exam on you to ensure that you do not have any hernias after your abdominal surgery.

In addition, you would need to be sure that you are fit for surgery and not a smoker to avoid unnecessary complications.

There are multiple techniques for a tummy tuck that you will discuss with your surgeon after an examination is performed.

You will likely have a very nice result after your tummy tuck. (Gaurav Bharti, MD, Johnson City Plastic Surgeon)

Tummy Tuck for Hanging Lower Abdominal Skin

How to tighten your belly photo before

You appear to be an excellent candidate for a tummy tuck. Although it is hard to tell from the pictures, you may not have enough skin above the umbilicus to pull all the way down to the pubis.

However, you do have the vertical scar already that cannot be removed entirely. This can be improved and the present umbilicval position incorporated if the position cannot be removed. I would, however, suggest that you lose some “waist” before considering the surgery. Although you are not much over an ideal BMI, most of your weight seems to be intraabdominal. By gradually changing your diet to less and better carbohydrates so that your carbohydrate, fat and protein calories are about equal, you will lose this intraabdominal fat. This will improbe your results and make your surgery safer. (Robert T. Buchanan, MD, Highlands Plastic Surgeon)

Scar removal via tummy tuck

You appear to be a good candidate for a tummy tuck, which would remove your vertical scar from the belly button downward. Liposuction will help contour your waist as well. It’s a win-win! (Carmen Kavali, MD, Atlanta Plastic Surgeon)

Abdominal Contouring

It is possible to improve your abdominal contour. There are some unique findings that will affect your outcome. You have extra fat around your organs that will not be helped by a tummy tuck or liposuction. Only diet and exercise will help with the intra-abdominal fat. The vertical scar above the belly button may also restrict how much skin tightening can be achieved and will have to be taken into consideration. Some liposuction would also be beneficial. Consult with a Plastic Surgeon for additional information. (Robert F. Centeno, MD, FACS, Fairfax Plastic Surgeon)

A tummy tuck with liposuction of the flanks and back will likely give you a nice result

Tummy tuck or liposuction

The colon resection appears to have stretched your abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck with muscle tightening and liposuction of the sides can be done. I would expect you to have a good result. The tummy tuck can use your existing scar or use a new one just above the pubis. Further liposuction may be needed as a second operation. See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an exam and to discuss which options are best for you.

Will tummy tuck tighten belly

It appears you would benefit from a tummy tuck and some contouring liposuction. However if a physical examination reveals significant intra-abdominal fatty tissue, then it would be advisable to loose some additional weight first. This would enable you to obtain a flatter tummy for your tummy tuck procedure. I would also suggest removing your previous abdominal scar during the procedure. This would eliminate the scar from preventing a maximum stretch to the skin (Jeffrey K. Scott, MD, Sarasota Plastic Surgeon)
