Thick waist

I have a thick waist will a tummy tuck help?

That all depends on what you call a "thick waist". You can't have a tummy tuck unless you have loose skin. Tummy tucks (http://discoverthebeauty.com/gallery-body-procedures-tummy-tuck.html) remove excess skin and tighten your muscles under your skin. This is frequently combined with liposuction, which removes excess fat from under your skin. Liposuction, (http://discoverthebeauty.com/liposuction.html) is the most likely procedure to reduce the size of your waistline. You can see some pics of each if you click on the links.

Good luck

Photos would be very helpful to see what you are describing as a “Thick Waist.” Often a combination of Liposuction (prone & supine) with an Abdominoplasty can be required to produce the slimmest waist possible in a patient. Here is link of some examples ( http://garyculbertson.com/body-plastic-surgery-before-and-after/ ). Consider a consult with an ASAPS Member in your area to address your concern(s). They are experts in Body Contouring procedures. Best,

Tummy Tuck for a Thick Waist.

A 'thick waist" can be caused by a number of things. An abdominoplasty can correct some of these. To determine if a tummy tuck is reasonable you need a full consultation with a plastic surgeon who you can find on this site.

Potentially a tummy tuck with or without liposuction will improve the contour of the waist. This is especially true for women after having children.
