Numerous men and women these days are dissatisfied with their figures. They may carry extra skin or fat around their middles and may not be able to make this tissue budge with diet and exercise changes alone. With today’s amazing treatments, we can now help you achieve the figure of your dreams with a single easy surgical procedure.
With the tummy tuck, you can take control of loose skin around your lower abdomen that may be drooping over your pubic bones, making it difficult to fit into your favorite clothes. Although the rest of your body may look great and be in amazing shape, you may still be left with this skin. Here is how you can know if you would be a good tummy tuck candidate.
You Have Drooping Belly Skin
Tummy tucks are primarily designed for individuals who have excessive skin and tissues hanging from the lower half of their abdomens to the suprapubic region. It is not designed for getting rid of fatty deposits, but it may be combined with a liposuction for dual results. With a single long incision that can be hidden beneath your waistband, your surgeon will be able to remove extra tissues to create a smooth, toned appearance.
You Are Postpartum or Have Lost Weight
Two of the best groups of candidates are women who have gone through one or more pregnancies and men or women who have lost a massive amount of weight and whose abdominal skin is excessively stretched.
You Are at Your Goal Weight
Individuals should be at or at least close to their goal weight before undergoing tummy tucks. Gaining weight after a tummy tuck can negate all of the good effects of the procedure.
You Are Done Being Pregnant
Likewise, getting pregnant after a tummy tuck will re-stretch the skin, destroying your smooth waist. While you will certainly be able to get pregnant after the procedure, you should be assured that you are done having babies before coming in for your consultation.
You Are Generally Healthy
Individuals who are healthy and free of acute or chronic illness and disease are best suited for tummy tucks. We also recommend that you be a non-smoker because this will give you the best chance to heal well.
You Understand the Purpose of a Tummy Tuck
The best candidate will have a good idea of what a tummy tuck can and cannot accomplish. It only changes your appearance at your abdomen and cannot be used for changing the rest of your physique.
With a tummy tuck, you can finally look and feel like the person you knew was hiding beneath your extra skin. You will be able to regain your confidence, feel better in public or private and feel comfortable in your favorite clothes. We know that you may suffer with embarrassment from this condition.
