A tummy tuck, sometimes called abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove extra skin and tissues, as well as an occasional bit of extra fat. While it is not designed to remove large amounts of fat if you are overweight, though it is an excellent solution for toning the body, helping you lose inches and giving you the curvy look that you crave.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
As mentioned, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you have extra skin and tissues hanging over your pelvis. You may find yourself complaining of a muffin top or feeling that your pants never fit correctly around your waist.
However, there are several other points that we check before we determine whether or not this procedure is right for you. You should have a positive idea of what this treatment can do for you. You should be doing it for yourself rather than to meet the expectations of someone else. In addition, you should be generally healthy and should not smoke, which will ensure that you heal well after surgery.
What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?
This is a surgical procedure that is done under general anesthesia for your comfort and safety. You will be asleep throughout the entire procedure. The surgeon will remove excess skin and tissue from the area, as well as drawing together your abdominal muscles if necessary.
Between the removal of extra tissues and the tightening of the abdominals, you can expect great results from your tummy tuck. However, you will need to take plenty of time to recover and will need to give your body time to decrease swelling in the area before you can fully appreciate your newly toned appearance.
While a tummy tuck may not be for everyone, it is an excellent choice if you are close to your goal weight and if you are dealing with extra skin and tissues that hang over your pelvis from your lower abdomen.
