Tummy Tuck Surgery by the Numbers

Board Certified Plastic Surgeons Serving Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, and Nearby Colorado

In 2017, tummy tucks regained their standing in the Top 5 Cosmetic Surgery Procedures in the United States, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Almost 130,000 people underwent tummy tucks last year. This procedure is ideal for removing excess fat and skin on the abdomen. It can also repair stretched and separated abdominal muscles, a condition known as diastasis recti, which commonly occurs during pregnancy when the muscles and abdominal cavity stretch. Moms with diastasis recti may be unhappy with a stubborn or "poochy" pregnancy belly even several months after childbirth. A tummy tuck repairs the gap in the muscles, and removes excess skin and fat.
