Sit-ups are supposed to be the cure-all when it comes to getting a flat and firm abdomen. Many have the idea that if a person does enough sit-ups, they will have absolutely no belly fat and six-pack abs. And while it is true that sit-ups are often part of a balanced workout routine, they are not really the cure-all. First, a person needs to lose fat over their entire body. Second, even when a person is at their goal weight and they exercise on a regular basis, they still may have an abdomen that is anything but desirable. A person may be left with abdominal fat that will not budge. And they may have excess skin in the abdominal area that simply will not respond to any type of exercise a person does or any diet they go on.
A tummy tuck could get you the results that you have been working hard to achieve through diet and exercise. This is a surgical procedure that is designed to remove loose skin in the abdominal area as well as get rid of extra fat. The muscles in the abdominal wall can also be tightened.
The very first thing that you should know about a tummy tuck is that it is not the same as just using liposuction in order to remove fat from the body. However, it is good to know that liposuction is often used in combination with a tummy tuck. Each individual is different, and the way the surgery is performed is going to be tailored to the individual who is receiving the surgery.
Before you come in for your consultation, you may be wondering who are the best candidates for this procedure. The first thing to know is that this is a procedure that both women and men can use. However, they need to be in good health. It is important for all individuals who are interested in a tummy tuck to understand that it is a surgical procedure. This means that the best candidates are in good overall health. Good candidates also have realistic expectations regarding the results.
