You’re so frustrated. You’ve done everything you can to get in shape. You go to the gym every day. You eat salads when you would rather eat cake. You hydrate and you get your beauty sleep. That hasn’t fixed the problems with your abdomen. Even though your weight is good, you still have resistant fat, excess skin and loose muscles in your abdomen. You’re tired of looking at the flab and trying to hide it with your clothes. You want to sculpt your body, but your own efforts are failing. An abdominoplasty procedure could be the answer that you need to get the abdomen that you want.
What Does a Typical Procedure Involve?
Abdominoplasty is more commonly known as a tummy tuck. It’s recommended when you are dealing with excess skin, fat and loose muscles in the abdomen. It is important to note that the exact details of each procedure vary from patient to patient. However, during a typical abdominoplasty procedure, our plastic surgeon removes excess skin and some fat and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles. The remaining skin can then be pulled tight in order to create a flat, toned stomach.
Are You a Candidate for Abdominoplasty?
An abdominoplasty procedure is not a magic fix for weight loss. However, if you are at your ideal weight and you are struggling with an abdomen that won’t respond to your hard work, abdominoplasty can likely help you. This procedure is often recommended for those who have lost a great deal of weight and need help to sculpt their abdomen. It is also helpful for women who have had a baby and notice extreme changes in the shape of their abdomen after pregnancy. This is because it can be especially challenging to get the body to snap back for women who have had multiple children.
