If you are someone who has tried everything to lose your muffin top or get rid of your love handles, chances are good that you have at least considered the idea of looking into cosmetic procedures to address your problem. The tummy tuck is one of the most well-known and effective surgical methods to achieve a flatter, firmer stomach.
Tummy Tuck Summary
Also known as abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck is a procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the body surgically. In addition, separated or weakened abdominal muscles may often be reinforced in order to restore a stronger, slimmer and smoother profile.
There are numerous factors that contribute to a saggy or flabby stomach area, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you haven’t been able to achieve the results you desire on your own. Pregnancy and fluctuations in weight can have a tremendous impact on the shape of your abdomen.
The toll these take cannot often be overcome through exercise and diet alone. The effects of time and hereditary may also play a role in your protruding belly. In addition, past surgeries or other life events may have left you with weakened muscles or a stomach that sags. A tummy tuck can address these issues.
Non-smokers who are in good health and who wish to have a sleeker and firmer abdomen likely candidates for a tummy tuck procedure. You should be prepared to go into the experience with realistic expectations of the potential outcome.
It is important to know that you will need to lead a relatively healthy lifestyle with regard to diet and exercise in order to maintain optimal results from abdominoplasty.
If you are planning to become pregnant or to lose a great deal of weight, it is best to postpone this procedure until after such life changes.
What to Expect
The extent of your incision will depend upon how much skin you will need to have removed. The surgeon may repair the weak muscles beneath. Speak with our surgeon regarding how we will tailor a tummy tuck procedure.
