While some people are genetically predisposed to have lots of collagen in their skin, making their skin tight and toned, others are not so fortunate. No matter how much weight you have lost and how much exercise you do, it’s possible you will be left with loose, drooping skin on your abdomen. If you want to get a tight, toned core, a tummy tuck may be the right solution for you. This procedure removes excess skin and fits the remaining skin to your torso tightly once more.
Understanding the Procedure
A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is usually performed under general anesthesia. The details of your procedure and the technique used will depend on your unique situation. However, during a typical tummy tuck procedure, excess skin, tissue and may even some fat is removed. The remaining skin is pulled tight in order to achieve a more toned, slim figure. The patient is usually able to go home on the same day of the procedure.
The Benefits of Abdominoplasty
There are both aesthetic and practical reasons to consider a tummy tuck. Not only can this procedure create a tight, tone midsection, but it can also remove stretch marks and relocate your navel to a better position. As far as practical considerations, a tummy tuck can help you avoid skin irritations and rashes in the folds of the skin. If the zipper of your jeans is always rubbing against the excess skin, abdominoplasty will solve the problem for good. You may also note feeling lighter and more comfortable as you move around and exercise.
One of the greatest benefits of getting a tummy tuck is an improved self-confidence. Patients note that after their procedure, they are happier, and they are more likely to engage in activities that they otherwise wouldn’t have. Generally speaking, when a person looks better, they feel better, and almost every aspect of their life is improved.
