There is a wealth of information about tummy tucks available online. For individuals wanting to know more about their options, it can be tempting to rely heavily on web searches to find the information they need to make healthcare decisions. However, this is something we discourage.

While online information can certainly be misleading or inaccurate, the main reason we encourage you to see a board-certified plastic surgeon in person rather than sitting down for an intense Google session is that there are big benefits of a tummy tuck consult over online research. Let’s take a look at three of them.

  1. You Get Answers to Your Specific Questions

    Tummy tuck consultations offer individualized information from a board-certified plastic surgeon.

    Information on the internet is designed for a broad audience. Even when the content you find is written by a medical professional, it isn’t written for you alone. The problem with this is every client is unique, including you. To get targeted answers that are guaranteed to apply to you, you have to sit down in person with a plastic surgeon to discuss a tummy tuck procedure.

  2. You Get a Glimpse into the Future

    One of the biggest benefits of a tummy tuck consult over online research is that the surgeon will help you understand what the result of the procedure might look like. A tummy tuck consultation can involve digital mockups, looking at before and after photos of previous patients with a similar starting point and marking directly onto the body to show where the changes will be made.

  3. You Know You Are Getting Professional Advice

    Many articles you come across when researching tummy tuck procedures claim to be written by medical professionals. But how do you know that is the truth? The simple fact is that you don’t. But when you sit down for an in-person tummy tuck consultation, you can rest assured that you are meeting with a doctor who focuses on the procedure you are seeking.

    Doing your own research isn’t a bad thing. Just make certain you approach information online with a healthy dose of skepticism and do not make any decisions until you speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
