According to reputable plastic surgeons from around the United States, the Tummy Tuck belt does not yield comparable results to an abdominoplasty. As the product does nothing to address the fat tissue and muscles under the skin, it is unable to provide long term results.
In order to promote lasting weight loss, a product needs to address more than just the skin. The product claims to ignite a 'lasting thermal effect', however there are no doctor testimonials to verify this claim. Claims to the contrary, however, are enthusiastically supported by plastic surgeons nationwide, all of whom agree that for a product to be effective, it must impact the underlying muscles and fat of the abdomen. Temporary results may be seen as a result of water weight loss, however permanent results are unanimously deemed to be unlikely by medical professionals.
