Will ThermiTIGHT work on my stomach? Or should I get a Tummy Tuck?
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding ThermiTIGHT
I am 26 with one child. I’ve tried losing weight and exercising, the middle part of my stomach has extra skin and hangs when I bend over. I’m curious if I try ThermiTIGHT, if there a chance it will work on me. I would like to avoid the huge scar a tummy tuck will leave if possible. I know I definitely need a BL.
You seem well informed. ThermiTIGHT IS working to shrink skin. I believe it would work well for you but only shrink and tighten 20-30% of the central tummy around the belly button.
If you are considering more pregnancies, then ThermiTIGHT maybe the answer for now as it is minimally invasive with only needle puncture sites and no incision. ThermiTIGHT is limited in that it will not remove skin excess nor tighten the inner muscle corset. You can consider a traditional tummy tuck in the future when you are more receptive to the scar.
Please consider a proper consultation by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience in all options so you receive the best recommendation for you.
All the best!
