Despite focusing on what you eat and the exercise you do, you may still find yourself unhappy with your midsection, whether it’s due to childbirth, illness, aging or genetics. Maybe you’ve finally lost some dreaded pounds, but you just can’t tighten up your tummy. If you find yourself wishing your waist was smaller, consult the experts at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery in Folsom, CA about a tummy tuck.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a procedure in which fat and extra skin are removed. The muscles are also tightened, giving the appearance of a smoother, flatter abdomen. The treatment may also involve:
– Separating the skin from the abdominal wall
– Realigning your abdominal muscles
– Making a new belly button
– Pulling the remaining skin tight
Who Should Get a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is best for someone in relatively good health who can maintain a stable weight. Those who have a substantial amount of weight to lose, or who may want to have a baby, should not have it done.
Once you contact Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, you will meet with staff members who will discuss your medical history. You will go over any health conditions, prior surgeries, and medications you take. You will also discuss your expectations and whether they are realistic. The surgeon will evaluate your overall health and your goals and determine whether a tummy tuck is right for you.
