Look and Feel Your Best with a Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck gives the abdomen an attractive contour. After surgery, you will look leaner and more toned. Your physique will reflect your healthy lifestyle. Clothing will fit better and flatter your curves. With all of these benefits, you will likely experience a surge of self-confidence.
Tummy tuck is an excellent solution to the problems that plague the abdomen after pregnancy and massive weight loss — namely, loose skin, excess fat deposits and weak/separated muscles. Tummy tuck is also an effective way to combat the effects of aging that have taken a toll on the abdomen.
Get the Skinny on Tummy Tuck
The tummy tuck operation accomplishes the following:
Removes loose, saggy skin: Over time, the body’s supply of collagen and elastin — two proteins that help keep the skin healthy and elastic — dwindles. As a result, the skin loosens and eventually sags. Pregnancy and significant weight loss can worsen the problem, stretching out the abdominal skin so significantly that it never “snaps back” to its original shape and instead pools and sags on the lower abdomen.
During abdominoplasty, this loose, saggy skin is eliminated from the abdomen. The remaining skin is tightened to hug the newly contoured abdomen. In some cases, tummy tuck techniques will improve or nearly eliminate the appearance of stretch marks below the navel.
Removes excess fat deposits: Even following a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise, you might find that your body holds or stores fat in your abdomen. This could cause your stomach to look disproportionately bigger than the rest of your body.
Tummy tuck incorporates liposuction techniques to eliminate targeted pockets of unwanted fat. The body contouring procedure carefully sculpts your midsection to give you the sexy hourglass shape you desire.
Repairs the abdominal wall: Because the stomach stretches during pregnancy, the abdominal muscles usually loosen and separate. No amount of diet or exercise will repair the muscle tone. Only tummy tuck can help.
During the operation, the separated muscles will be pulled together and stitched into place with permanent internal sutures, placed in a crisscross pattern in the muscle fascia. This technique holds the muscles in place long-term for a leaner contour.
