A plus size tummy tuck procedure is for candidates who have a body mass index (BMI) of 33 or more and have excess loose skin following major weight loss. Also known as a panniculectomy or abdominoplasty, a plus-size tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that trims excess fat and skin from the abdomen to create a more contoured midsection. The procedure may also help to restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles, which can occur as a result of weight loss, aging, or pregnancy. During this procedure, excess fat often located on the lower abdomen, flanks, and lower back will be removed, while abdominal muscles may be tightened or repaired to create a smoother, sleeker look. Plus-size tummy tucks can help create a more flattering figure and additional confidence in individuals who have excess abdominal fat and skin.

A candidate for a plus-size tummy tuck abdominoplasty procedure is someone who is significantly overweight and has excess fat and/or skin in their abdominal area that is not responding to diet and exercise. The ideal candidate should have realistic expectations and be willing to commit to a healthy lifestyle before and after surgery for the best results.

People that were once obese and have worked to lose weight may benefit from a plus-size tummy tuck if their abdominal area has not returned to its pre-weight-loss state, or if excess fat and skin remain. It’s important to note that plus-size tummy tucks don’t address any existing health conditions or eating habits, and that proper nutrition and lifestyle habits must continue to be followed for optimal results. If you’re looking for a way to sculpt your stomach and rid yourself of abdominal fat, seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon at Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics for a consultation to discuss what you can achieve. A plus-size tummy tuck may be the perfect way to maximize your efforts of improving your body composition and taking steps toward a better version of yourself.

Here are some examples of before and after cases of our patients who have a higher BMI and underwent a full abdominoplasty procedure at Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics.
