You can hit the gym every day and do crunches until you are blue in face. You can eat those salads and cut out the carbs. No matter what you do to trim your body down to the size and shape that you want, there are bound to be trouble spots. Your stomach is one of your biggest challenges. If you find that your stomach muscles aren’t tightening up the way that you want and that pesky fat won’t go away, it’s time for some help from an expert. Our plastic surgeon can assist you in sculpting your body to achieve a better figure with abdominoplasty.
Abdominoplasty Gets Results
When all of your hard work fails to carve out the kind of stomach that you want to see, abdominoplasty can take you to the next level. Also known as a tummy tuck, this procedure can provide you with a smooth, tight abdomen that eliminates your aggravation. During a typical procedure, any excess skin can be removed, along with some excess fat. Your muscles in your stomach can also be tightened. The final step usually involves pulling the skin taut. Once you have fully recovered, you will be able to enjoy the results of your procedure.
Are You a Candidate for Abdominoplasty?
Abdominoplasty is not a weight loss solution. However, if you have reached your ideal weight but still have a loose stomach with deposits of fat, abdominoplasty could be right for you. If you have lost an excessive amount of weight or your stomach has gone through numerous changes due to pregnancies over the years, abdominoplasty might be the only way to get our stomach to snap back. Our plastic surgeon will be able to tell you if this procedure is a good option for you.
It is important for potential patients to understand that you will need to make an effort to maintain your results after the procedure. If you gain weight or you have more children in the future, you could see problems with your abdomen again.
