Should I Consider a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also referred to as abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery treatment in which excess skin and fat tissues are removed from your abdominal region. It can also involve the tightening of underlying muscles. Dr. Barone redrapes the remaining tissues in a more taut, slim shape. Tummy tuck surgery is commonly performed for patients after pregnancy or extreme weight loss, or for patients who are genetically predisposed to carry excess fat and skin in their midsections. Although patients may be able to tighten their muscles and lose some fat from with exercise, excess skin can only be addressed through surgery.
If you have sagging skin and fat deposits in your belly area, you might be a good candidate for tummy tuck. As with any plastic surgery, it is important to become familiar with all of the potential risks and benefits of this treatment.
What Are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tuck surgery offers many benefits, including:
- Increased confidence
- More clothing options
- A more defined waistline
- The removal of excess skin that can be painful for some patients
- The removal of stretch marks on excess abdominal skin
- Long-lasting results that can be maintained with regular exercise and a healthy diet
Many patients choose to have liposuction at the same time as their tummy tuck surgery. Liposuction removes excess fat deposits from the abdominal area, and can also be performed on other areas of the body for a more comprehensive aesthetic enhancement.
