Medically known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck gives you a well-toned stomach by tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin and fat. Many women strive to get a defined stomach, but may find it difficult after childbirth and rapid weight loss. Even women who regularly exercise and have a body weight that is in the normal range may have a sagging stomach with excess fat. A tummy tuck is the ideal procedure to get rid of that lower stomach flab that diet and exercise alone cannot do.
What is the procedure like?
During the tummy tuck procedure, the separated or damaged abdominal muscles are tightened to support and strengthen your core. Then, some fat deposits in the abdomen and excess, sagging skin is removed. Due to the removal of skin, stretch marks may be flattened more, and some may even be removed during the procedure. Plus, your waist will become more defined, your profile will become slimmer, and your clothing will fit better due to your more proportionate body contour.
Should I get a tummy tuck?
You may find your tummy got out of shape from aging, pregnancy, or from losing a lot of weight in a short period of time. Unfortunately, sometimes no matter how much diet and exercise you do, and no matter how much time has passed, you just cannot get rid of that lower stomach flab.
Pregnancy can be one of the most rewarding experiences, but with childbirth and breastfeeding, also one of the most damaging on the body. The growing of your little one changes your tummy by stretching the inside muscle wall of your abdomen, causing the sagging skin, stretch marks, and fat deposits. If you have tried getting your pre-baby toned tummy back from diet and exercise alone and have not been very happy with your results, then the tummy tuck may be a good procedure for you.
Or, you may have lost a lot of weight after undergoing bariatric weight loss surgery. Although everyone's skin elasticity and rate of weight loss is different, you may have developed a large amount of loose skin. The tummy tuck procedure will help you get that tight and firm abdomen you desire, and make your tummy gorgeous again.
