Your body is your temple and you are committed to taking care of yourself. You get exercise every day and make healthy choices when it comes to what you eat. You’ve managed to maintain your ideal weight and you’re happy with yourself, but you have one problem area that you can’t tackle on your own. You just can’t flatten your stomach, no matter how hard you’ve tried. No amount of sit-ups or crunches have worked to give you positive results. It’s time to turn to someone who can help you to achieve your dream figure. Our board-certified plastic surgeon can help you with a tummy tuck.
Is a Tummy Tuck Right for You?
You need to understand that a tummy tuck is not a weight loss solution. If you feel that you have not reached your ideal weight and you plan on starting a weight loss program, a tummy tuck is not going to solve the problem. A tummy tuck is recommended to shape and flatten your stomach when all other methods have failed.
Whether you did lose a considerable amount of weight or you’ve been pregnant once or more, your abdomen can go through a great deal of change. You can lose muscle tone and have an accumulation of fat in your stomach. If you just can’t seem to whip that stomach into shape, a tummy tuck could be the answer.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
During a typical tummy tuck procedure, our plastic surgeon will trim away extra skin. Fat may be removed as well. It may be necessary to tighten your muscles in your abdomen to give you a more sculpted appearance.
Our plastic surgeon can pull the skin down from your upper abdomen to tighten your stomach. The result will be a smoother, firmer stomach. Once you have fully recovered from your surgery, you will be able to enjoy your results. You should continue to be diligent about your exercise program and eating habits.
