You feel like you are at war with your body. You’ve been working so hard to trim yourself down to the size that you want to be. You’ve done every type of exercise you can think of. You have skipped dessert and you eat plenty of salads. Your weight has cooperated and you are happy with the scale, but your abdomen is another story. No matter what you do, you still have a loose, flabby belly. It’s time to seek help. Our plastic surgeon can offer you an alternative that works. Think about a tummy tuck to transform your physique.
When to Choose a Tummy Tuck
No plastic surgery should be taken lightly. A tummy tuck is not a magical fix if you are overweight. If you still have pounds to shed, you need to find an eating and exercise plan that will be effective. However, you can consider getting a tummy tuck if you are at your ideal weight, but still have excess fat and skin hanging on to your midsection. Choose this option when you have loose muscles and loose skin as well. If you have had children, lost an extreme amount of weight or you are losing elasticity in your skin as you age, your stomach may not snap back. If you want it to look flat and smooth, a tummy tuck could give you positive results.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
During a tummy tuck procedure, our plastic surgeon can remove excess skin and fat and tighten your abdominal muscles. The remaining skin can also be pulled until it is tight. You’ll have special instructions concerning at-home care after your procedure. You should take it as easy as possible during this time to ensure a successful recovery and optimal results. Once you have fully healed, you will be able to appreciate the results of your tummy tuck.
Ask Our Plastic Surgeon About a Tummy Tuck
You’ve been discouraged about your stomach and the way it looks. It’s time to change that. Schedule a consultation at the Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center to discuss your stomach. Explain what you have done already to try and get the results that you want to see. Our plastic surgeon will examine you, talk about your health and look at your records to make sure you do not have any type of condition that could disqualify you from the procedure. If our doctor gives approval for a tummy tuck, you will be well on your way to getting the figure that will make you happy.
