Weighing the Pros and Cons of a Tummy Tuck

Like all other types of surgery, a tummy tuck has its own set of risks. However, you can avoid the occurrence of such risks and complications through a careful consideration of the pros and cons. During your initial consultation for a tummy tuck here at our Pottsville plastic surgery practice, we include a thorough discussion of the pros and cons of the procedure, including how it could affect you, given your current lifestyle and physical condition.

The following are the pros and cons of a tummy tuck: 


  • Sculpts and contours the abdomen, helping restore your naturally youthful proportions
  • Strengthens the abdominal muscles
  • You will look better in swimwear and tight-fitting clothes
  • Restores your self-confidence resulting to better relationships with others as well as improved quality of life


  • Presence of scar (like all types of surgeries, scar will be present but our highly experienced tummy tuck surgeons will make it as inconspicuous as possible)
  • Another pregnancy may cause the abdominal muscles to separate again, compromising the results of your surgery
  • Significant weight gain following surgery may have a negative effect on the results
