You work hard to take care of your body. You eat the right kind of diet and make sure exercise is a regular part of your life. It’s paid off and you have reached a weight that makes you happy, but there’s one problem. Your stomach doesn’t want to cooperate. That extra fat is hanging on and you just can’t get that flat stomach, no matter how hard you try. When resistant fat won’t go away and those muscles aren’t as tight as they should be, you can sculpt your figure with a tummy tuck to get the results you hope to see.
How Can a Tummy Tuck Work for You?
When you choose to have a tummy tuck, our board-certified plastic surgeon will tailor your procedure to meet your needs. After evaluating your stomach, our doctor will plan the best course of action to help you transform your midsection. The main goal is to remove any excess skin and fat to reveal a smooth stomach. When diet and exercise have not been enough, a tummy tuck can help you to mold your figure the way you want it to be.
What Happens During the Procedure?
A tummy tuck is an outpatient procedure. Our plastic surgeon will begin by ensuring that you are comfortable during surgery. During the procedure itself, our surgeon may remove unwanted fat if necessary. Excess skin will be removed as well. The muscular structure of your stomach will be tightened. The remaining skin will also be pulled tight.
Is a Tummy Tuck the Right Choice for You?
Before undergoing any type of surgery, our plastic surgeon will evaluate you and check your medical history. A tummy tuck is not intended as a quick fix for losing weight. If you have not reached your ideal weight, you will need to find a weight loss plan that works for you before considering a tummy tuck. However, if you are at or near your ideal weight, this may be a good option for you.
