As you probably know all too well, toning the midsection through diet and exercise alone can be difficult. It’s easier to trim other parts of your body, but it just seems like the fat and excess skin that’s around your midsection holds on. There are a lot of times in your life when you might notice issues with your abdomen. For example, childbirth, pregnancy, and aging all seem to cause people to gain fat in their midsection. It can be frustrating when diet and exercise do not produce the results that you want. Thankfully, there are proven surgical procedures that can help tighten up the appearance of your midsection, giving you the flat, firm stomach you want. One of the most effective procedures used to achieve this goal is a tummy tuck.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck can also be referred to as abdominoplasty. This is a popular cosmetic procedure that allows our surgeon to remove the stubborn deposits of fat from your mid-region. At the same time, loosened abdominal muscles can be tightened and excess skin can be removed. From there, the remaining skin can be pulled tight in order to create a tight and toned abdomen. The result is that your core is stronger and leaner.
A tummy tuck is a very customizable procedure. It can be customized to address the specific body issues and the specific body goals that you have. Our medical professionals work with their patients in order to help them create a treatment plan that is right for them. A good tummy tuck is not going to leave you looking worked on. Instead, it’s going to leave you with a slim figure. You’re likely going to feel an increase in your self-esteem following the procedure.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
A good candidate for a tummy tuck understands that tummy tucks are not to designed to be weight loss procedures. They are designed to help you sculpt your body. As a result, to get the most out of the procedure, you need to be near or at your ideal weight.
A good candidate for a tummy tuck needs to be in good overall health. They also need to have realistic expectations of what the procedure can and cannot do for them, and they need to have the determination to stick to their diet and exercise routine after the surgery has been performed.
