If you’re tired of trying to hide those extra bulges around your midsection, or you just want a flatter stomach, consider the benefits of tummy tuck surgery. The tummy tuck continues to be a popular procedure for women who have undergone pregnancy and for those who have gained and then lost a significant amount of weight over their lifetime. The procedure can tighten loose skin, repair the abdominal muscles, and slim down your midsection to create a streamlined appearance. Many patients who are frustrated by not getting the results they want with a healthy diet and diligent fitness program are amazed by the results they achieve with cosmetic surgery!
What Can a Tummy Tuck Do for Me?
The tummy tuck procedure can be very effective for slimming down and reshaping the midsection. If your abdominal muscles have stretched out, you may always have a protruding stomach — no matter how much weight you lose. An abdominoplasty can reshape and repair stretched muscles so that you maintain a flat and toned midsection. We can combine this procedure with liposuction to remove fat bulges and contour the body.
A tummy tuck will also take a few inches off your waistline by eliminating loose and sagging skin. Once the skin has lost its elasticity after weight loss, it does not always bounce back. The procedure involves trimming away loose skin and fat to create a tight and taut appearance.
Another benefit of undergoing tummy tuck surgery is that it can reshape your silhouette. If you are genetically predisposed to carrying more weight around your midsection, you can change the shape of your body with a tummy tuck procedure. The body contouring procedure can reshape the upper and lower abdomen to create more attractive abdominal contours.
Am I Ready for a Tummy Tuck?
If you are not planning on having more children and can take some time off work to recover from this body contouring procedure, you may be a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery. The procedure can be combined with liposuction to help you achieve the best possible results by removing any excess fat as well. If you are bothered by loose skin or a tummy pooch, the tummy tuck in can restore your silhouette.
