Good Tummy Tuck Results : In an Athlete

Good tummy tuck results in an athlete can be difficult. The surgery needs to be carefully modified and proscribed specifically in very fit clients. Below is a “Before & After” of an athletic woman who could not lose the loose “pudge” in her tummy. The portion of this extra flab near the panty has been called mother’s apron. The medical term is pannus. This patient did not have a very loose or prominent pannus, but was bothered by it. Although she was quite fit, she came wondering whether an “athlete tummy tuck” might be beneficial.

Good Athlete Tummy Tuck


Upon examination, a belly button hernia was also found with a lot of muscular wall thinning nearby. This was likely a derivative of child bearing. A tummy tuck with abdominal hernia repair was performed and at 5 months she was pleased.

    It can cost you an arm and a leg. Na, I asked my doctor to give me a plastic surgeon. I call for an appt. Anyhow, the secretary told me it would cost me $30.00 just to be seen. (I wanted a tummy tuck because I had 2 kids.) They lady told me $10,000-$35,000. Yeap. Costs as much as buying a new car. No, I didn’t do it because I don’t have the money. Good luck.

    I keep coming back to look at this. You should label it Epic Plastic Surgery really.
