The procedure is used to tighten loose skin, eliminate excess fatty deposits, and tighten the abdominal muscles to create a leaner, more toned midsection. At the Zwiebel Center for Plastic Surgery and Skin Care in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, we offer full and mini tummy tucks as options to address your specific needs.

It’s important to note that the tummy tuck procedure, while beneficial for many, is not perfect for everyone. Certain factors may inhibit you from being a candidate for this procedure, as your health and lifestyle play an important part in determining if this treatment is right for you.

Factors that disqualify you from candidacy include:

  • Poor health
  • Being overweight
  • Are or are planning to be pregnant
  • Being a smoker

Ideal candidates include those who:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Are at or near their ideal weight
  • Have excess skin resulting from weight loss
  • Have fatty deposits in the abdominal area
  • Have loose skin or muscles from pregnancy
  • Want a more toned and contoured waist

The best way to determine if you’re a candidate for a tummy tuck is to schedule an appointment with our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel. During your initial consult, Dr. Zwiebel will go over your medical history, assess your overall health, and talk with you about your specific goals.

Dr. Zwiebel has over 30 years of experience helping people through plastic surgery.
