If you look at your midsection and do not like what you see, you have options. The first option you have is to go to the gym and change your diet. Changing your diet and exercise routine may help a little bit. However, no matter how hard you work out or how much you change your diet, there’s nothing that you can do to completely reverse sagging skin and flab that has accumulated around your abdomen. A tummy tuck is a popular option for individuals who want to tighten up their mid-area.
The entire tummy tuck procedure begins with the initial consultation stage. During this stage, our medical professional is focused on making sure that you are overall healthy. We’re going to talk about your concerns and do a full medical background check. Then, we’re going to use this information to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
Once our surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck, we’re going to talk to you about the different types of tummy tucks that are available. You could get a partial tummy tuck or a complete tummy tuck. It all depends on the situation. Our cosmetic surgeon may determine that your tummy tuck should be combined with liposuction to give you the best results.
During the actual tummy tuck procedure, our surgeon may use a variety of different techniques. The exact details of the procedure vary from patient to patient, since each individual is unique. However, during a typical tummy tuck, excess skin and some excess fat is removed and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened. The remaining skin is pulled tight in order to achieve a tight and toned appearance.
It is important to understand that this procedure does involve a recovery. You must take it as easy as possible during this time while also following our surgeon’s instructions regarding healing. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your procedure.
