Having surgery for your stomach, or abdominoplasty, gets rid of the excess skin and fat you find unattractive around your middle. It can also restore muscles that have become weak or separated. A tummy tuck can make a difference in the way your clothes fit your body, and help you feel more confident as well as comfortable in your body. Although exercise can help create a well-toned abdomen, it doesn’t work for everyone.
You Might Consider a Tummy Tuck If:
–You have a flabby tummy due to aging.
–You have a family history of “muffin tops”.
–You have had one or more pregnancies.
–You have surgeries which weakened the stomach muscles.
–You have gained or lost significant amounts of weight.
Tummy Tuck Options
A mini-tummy tuck is for treating the lower belly, getting rid of loose skin and stretch marks and tightens abdominal muscles that run below the belly button.
–A full tummy tuck removes excess skin above and below your belly button and tightens all your abdominal muscles.
–An extended tummy tuck removes extra skin from the upper and lower abdomen, including the flanks and tightens the abdominal wall.
If you have tried everything such as weight loss, diet, and exercise and are still unable to shed that belly weight, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
