Abdominal fat can be some of the most difficult to lose on your own. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the pockets of fat around your midsection just won’t go away. It’s also possible you may have excess skin in that area due to recent weight loss or other factors. If either of these are the case, you may be a candidate for a tummy tuck. Also known by the medical term “abdominoplasty”, this surgical procedure can help to give you the tighter tummy you desire by removing fat and hanging skin. It also tightens the abdominal walls to help present a tighter core and a sleeker body contour.
Both men and women are suitable candidates for a tummy tuck. This surgery isn’t meant to be a quick-fix weight loss substitute. It’s best for those who are near their goal weight, but who have localized pockets of fat or excess skin around their midsection. This is a surgical procedure, so there is a recovery involved.
The results of a tummy tuck can be quite dramatic. This popular procedure is a great option for anyone who wishes to reduce small areas of fat and get rid of excess skin in the midsection.
How a Tummy Tuck is Performed
Tummy tucks are done on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our state-of-the-art surgical suite. The procedure is customized for the patient, so no two procedures are exactly alike. Our surgeon may remove excess skin and/or fat and then tighten the underlying abdominal muscles. From there, he can pull the remaining skin tight in order to create a flat, toned abdomen.
