Tummy Tuck Surgery in Chicago, IL

The Tummy Tuck Chicago directory was developed as a guide for potential Chicago tummy tuck patients who wish to learn more about this procedure. This Tummy Tuck Chicago directory lists several highly skilled Chicago plastic surgery specialists who have performed many successful abdominoplasty procedures. While an expertly performed tummy tuck can remove some of the unsightly fatty tissue from the abdominal area, this procedure is not a weight loss surgery. The primary purpose of a tummy tuck Chicago procedure is to tighten the abdominal muscles and skin, creating an appearance of a flatter stomach. In fact, many Chicago patients choose to undergo tummy tuck approximately one year after their Lap-band surgery, Roux-en-Y bypass or other weight loss procedure to address the issue of extra skin. Depending on the extent of weight loss, patients might also require body contouring surgery in addition to abdominoplasty to improve the appearance of their thighs and buttocks. They might also decide to beautify their facial appearance by receiving facial injectables such as Botox.

Traveling to Chicago for Plastic Surgery

The city of Chicago is situated in northeastern Illinois beside Lake Michigan and two rivers, the Chicago River and the Calumet River. Due to its location, Chicago experiences four distinct seasons, with temperatures reaching up to 85°F in the summer and dropping to approximately 17°F in the winter months. While Chicago is known as the "Windy City," it is not significantly windier than any other major city in the United States. Chicago is also known for its picturesque urban cityscape consisting of many impressive skyscrapers. Currently, the tallest buildings in the city are the Sears Tower, the John Hancock Center and the Aon Center. The Sears Tower at one time was the tallest building in the world, but it has been surpassed by the Burj Dubai building in the United Arab Emirates, which claims to be the tallest man-made structure on Earth. Besides its architectural attractions, Chicago is also famous for its diverse, excellent museums. One of the more popular museums is the Oriental Institute, which is devoted to the study of the ancient Far East. The city of Chicago also features many charming parks, the most recent of which is the Millennium Park. Opened in 2004, this park has become a major tourist destination due to its postmodern architecture, artistic sculptures and exquisite gardens.
