A Chicago tummy tuck offers the promise of a thinner, younger, and sexier body; but how you know if it’s right for you?

What is a Tummy Tuck?
An alternative to liposuction, this cosmetic procedure gets rid of stubborn fat and excess skin that has accumulated around your mid-section. It can give you the confidence and self-esteem you’ve been craving. The procedure is fairly straight forward with very little long-term side effects, and a short recovery period.

Here are some things to keep in mind before making your decision on whether this is the right option for you:

Do You Have Excess Fat around your middle?
If you have excess fat around your waist that stubbornly won’t go away and you are suffering from low self-esteem because of it, you may want to consider a tummy tuck. Excess fat, particularly around your middle, is believed to be the ‘worst’ kind. It has been linked to many diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and more.

Do you exercise regularly and eat healthy?
If you follow good eating habits and exercise at least three times a week (at least most of time) and you can’t seem to get rid of the stubborn fat, then maybe you need a bit of help via a tummy tuck. Don’t think that you can have the procedure, get rid of fat and then continue with bad eating habits. The weight will just pile back on and you’ll be right back where you started.

Are you in good general health?
If you have no underlying health issues, such as heart disease, diabetes or other major health concern, then your doctor should have no concerns regarding the procedure.
