Your stomach is the most frustrating part of your body. While everything else has responded to your fitness and eating plan, you still have some pesky fat hanging on in your midsection. Worse yet, you can’t get your stomach to tighten up the way that you want it to be. You’ve tried every type of exercise you can imagine. You’ve changed up your diet time and again in hopes that it would work, but you haven’t had any luck. Sometimes, resistant fat simply does not want to go away. You can live with it or you can consider a tummy tuck.
What Can a Tummy Tuck Do for You?
A tummy tuck involves the removal of excess fat in your stomach and the tightening of the abdominal muscles. If you were only worried about fat removal, liposuction could be the best solution. When you have more than fat that is bothering you in your stomach, you need to take a more involved approach that will get rid of excess, loose skin as your abdominal muscles are tightened to give you that toned, flat stomach.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
During a typical tummy tuck, our plastic surgeon will remove excess skin. Fat will be removed and special tools will be used to tighten your abdominal muscles. The remaining flap of skin will then be pulled down tight. Once you have completely healed from surgery, you won’t believe the difference in the appearance of your stomach.
Fluctuations in weight and pregnancy will affect the shape and tone of your stomach. Once you are sure that you are ready for the procedure, you can move forward. You will need to be realistic about your results. They are only going to last if you continue to exercise and make wise choices about what you eat.
