About Tummy Tuck Belt

If we are to believe the website and infomercial, an owner of a Tummy Tuck Belt merely needs to “…follow the 10 Minute Method twice per day. After the 10 minutes, you can take off the belt. This starts the fat reducing process that lasts for several hours.” It is also claimed that typical results see a one-inch difference in the first 30 days, without lifestyle change. It is further claimed that the Tummy Tuck system “ignites a fat-burning chain reaction” that works “long after you’ve taken off the belt.”

The official website, seen in the February 2014 screen capture below, is TummyTuckBelt.com, which was registered on June 17, 2010.

How much does Tummy Tuck Belt cost?

Tummy Tuck Belt is $39.98 plus $9.83 shipping and handling.

A 30-day supply of the “Thermal Accelerator Cream” is $24.99 plus $3.99 shipping and handling. Their “standard” shipping takes 2 weeks, so upgrading to 3-5 day shipping adds another $14.95.

When you purchase the Tummy Tuck Belt, you are automatically enrolled in their auto-ship program which sends you a two-month supply of the cream for $19.99 per month, plus another $6.99 shipping. This is $46.97 every two months.

Auto-ship

When you order, you’ll notice the following in the product description:

Starting in 30 days, and then every other month, you’ll receive a 2 month supply of Thermal Accelerator cream for just $19.99 per month plus $6.99 shipping and handling charged to the same credit card you are using today. 

Clinical Studies

The website puts a good deal of emphasis on clinical studies performed by 2 universities. They do not tell us which universities performed these studies or where the results were published. We reached out to them for more information on these studies, and their reply stated:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding Tummy Tuck. The studies were conducted independently by two medical universities. Because its independent testing, we are not allowed to disclose the names of the universities. All I’m able to disclose is that they are prominent medical universities located in Southern California. If you have any additional questions please reply directly to this email. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

The Catch

The Tummy Tuck system includes cream to be rubbed on your stomach, in addition to simply wearing the belt. As stated above, this is where the “catch” lies if you aren’t careful. You will automatically receive additional cream in the mail every other month, charged to your card, until you call and cancel. Consider their terms and conditions which you must agree to when ordering:

Customers who have enrolled in our Continuity Essential Boost or Thermal Accelerator Cream automatic ongoing shipments programs will receive their first Continuity shipment in 30 days, and then every other month. Essential Boost customers will receive a full 60 day supply of Essential Boost at the reserved price of $19.99 per month, plus $6.99 shipping and handling. Thermal Accelerator Cream customers will receive a full 60 day supply of Thermal Accelerator Cream at the reserved price of $19.99 per month, plus $6.99 shipping and handling. Customers may cancel all future shipments at any time by calling Savvier’s customer service center at 800-305-8988. To receive a refund on a shipment made prior to cancellation, just return the merchandise, as mentioned earlier in this Satisfaction Guarantee.

Other Tummy Tuck Belt Reviews

From users we have spoken to and from other reviews online, some customers claim the Tummy Tuck Belt does work, but those are typically people who also followed a diet and exercise plan. For those who merely applied the cream and wore the belt, the results have been less enthusiastic  This of course stands to reason that diet and exercise – with or without the belt – would yield better results.

According to Livestrong“Since weight loss belts do not burn calories, you will not lose fat around the abdomen.”

The product can be found on Amazon, and as of February 2014, has 116 one-star reviews out of 247 total. The phrases “waste of money” and “does not work” are found in many of these reviews.

Bottom Line

Aside from surgery, the only way to lose fat is to burn calories than you consume. Wearing a belt and applying cream to your stomach will not reduce fat, regardless of the anonymous studies they claim back this product. The Tummy Tuck Belt commercials assert that wearing the belt can also act as a girdle by instantly tucking in your belly fat, which probably is accurate. That still doesn’t mean their claims that it “melts away” fat are true.

If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Slimming belts such as the Tummy Tuck Belt have been around for ages, and the claims made by other belt manufacturers were the target of charges filed by the Federal Trade Commission in 2002. Read more here.

An infomercial citing anonymous “studies” for a product that has already been targeted by the FTC doesn’t sound like a good investment. Neither does signing up for an auto-ship program for creams by the same company.

    Is the belt really works??I think the best option is Tummy Tuck surgery than the Tummy Tuck belt

  • iyanna

    i just started using it but i wanted to know if it works WITHOUT the cream ?? or it doesnt work at all ?

    • waffles

      Our testers did not believe it worked at all, with or without the cream.

  • Abby

    I have the tummy tuck belt. I does slim you down while u wear it as does any girdle . I saw no lost in inches around my middle until I incorporated diet &exercise.

  • Jarrel

    Why not give this belt a try, I mean you would get your money back anyway it goes if you dont like it. So why not? You people eat hamburgers from Mcdonalds and know that it is fake and processed meat, and you enjoy it anyway. I’ll give it a chance. If I dont like it oh well, I’ll just get my money back. $$$$ :-) $$$$$ :-)

    • waffles

      You don’t get the shipping costs back.

  • Barb

    @ Jarrell – before you believe that fairy tale that you’ll just get your money back be sure you read the reviews of many that have either had a hard time getting their money back or getting their card unlocked from the membership they sign themselves into when they buy the product. Not just this product – but majority of these “As Seen On TV” products where they lock you into a membership of sorts its very hard to end the membership. You’ll get tired of calling and speaking to reps who just try to get you to buy something else…or you get a rep that doesn’t speak english very well or you’ll get an automated system which instructs you to leave a message and someone will get back to you right away, which will never happen. Or you’ll get a rep that tells you the membership has been cancelled but next month you’ll be back on the phone because another charge has been added to your card and the next rep you get tells you the membership wasn’t cancelled. Sound like fun? Avoid the frustration and loss of money. Just wait until it’s at your local Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc, where you can personally take the item back and get an actual refund without having to worry about crazy charges showing up on your card or getting locked into any reship membership.
