Have you exhausted every conceivable method to help you eliminate excess skin and fat in your tummy? Exercising and pushing your body to its absolute limit, or following every diet fad in the book is a good start toward accomplishing your goals. There are times, however, when these methods alone won’t provide the satisfactory results that you expect.

Everybody is different and we all have different reactions to exercise and food. One person’s results using a particular method, won’t always work for another. When you have to deal with excess fat cells in the mid-region, but nothing seems to be working, you can undergo an Abdominoplasty surgery to help you with your goals.

What Is an Abdominoplasty?

An abdominoplasty, more popularly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgery that is performed to remove the excess skin and fat that are present in the tummy. It can also be used to help strengthen the weak muscles in your tummy, giving it a sleek and firm appearance.

Who Is a Tummy Tuck Ideal for?

If you are trying to regain the figure you had before giving birth, lost a significant loss of weight, have genetic predisposition to accumulating fat in certain regions of the tummy, or you are someone who has lost their flat stomach due to the aging process, a tummy tuck is the ideal for you. It can add more definition to your tummy to give you a more aesthetically pleasing mid-region.

Are You a Good Candidate?

Before undergoing a tummy tuck procedure, it is highly important for you to consult an experienced surgeon to help determine if you will make a good candidate. During your consultation, he will ask you to discuss your previous medical history and any existing conditions you have.

If you are in god general health and you’re not taking any medications that can cause complications, you’ll make a good candidate, However, if you plan on getting pregnant soon or you aren’t within your ideal weight range, your surgeon will suggest that you delay your plans to get a tummy tuck until after you have had children or you have reached your ideal weight.

Also, if your goal is to lose a lot of weight using a tummy tuck, then this procedure isn’t for you. It is more useful as a contouring procedure to add more definition to your tummy rather than one that is meant to help you drop pounds.

What are the Results of Abdominoplasty Surgery?

During the procedure, your surgeon will make strategic incisions that will remain hidden as you heal. Within 2 weeks, you will be able to stand confidently and tall as your profile will look slimmer and more toned from every angle. The area around your tummy will be firm, flat, and well-contoured. This will make your tummy more pleasing to the eye.

What to Expect After the Procedure

There aren’t any good reasons as to why you have to live with a tummy that isn’t slim and firm. It will be easier to fit into tight fitting clothes and you won’t have to worry about how your tummy appears in more revealing clothing. With your new and improved appearance, you’ll feel more confident when you go to places like the beach where you can show off your improved contours.
