Do you avoid your favorite foods and spend hours at the gym only to notice a little bit of stubborn extra fat around your stomach that seems to refuse to go away? Despite your best efforts at dieting and exercising, stomach fat, or abdominal fat, is one of the most difficult fat deposits in the body to lose and takes years of dedication and hard work.
Wouldn’t it just be easier to skip all the hard work and take a little help from a plastic surgeon who can trim away that annoying tummy bulge in no time? This is exactly what a tummy tuck can help you accomplish.
What Is A Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a type of plastic surgery that helps remove the extra tissue from the stomach and waist to give you a firmer, flatter, and smoother stomach region.
Abs are extremely hard to get with diet and exercise, and even if you have a flat stomach standing up, the moment you sit down or bend over, you find that little bit of tummy fat or flab poking out from over your jeans. That part is the hardest to get rid of – but it’s nothing a tummy tuck can’t handle.
A tummy tuck creates a taut and tight tummy by getting rid of all unwanted fat and excess skin and by tightening loose muscle tissue. After this procedure, patients have a perfectly flat stomach whether they’re standing up or sitting down.
Advantages Of A Tummy Tuck Procedure
A tummy tuck helps to remove any excess stomach fat and drooping skin from the abdominal region and helps tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The reason why there is a bulge when you bend or sit is that the abdominal walls aren’t tight or stiff enough and expand as you eat.
Crunches and sit-ups aim to tighten the abdominal wall as much as possible but won’t help you achieve what a tummy tuck will be able to. Along with a tummy tuck, your surgeon might choose to perform liposuction if there is too much excess fat in the abdominal region.
To be eligible to undergo a tummy tuck procedure, you should be in good health and not have any lifestyle habits like smoking or drinking.
The procedure can be performed on women who have experienced pregnancy and childbirth and have too much loose skin, excess fat, and loose muscles after the delivery of the child.
A tummy tuck is also performed on people who were obese and who underwent a major weight loss. This weight loss can leave a person with excess amounts of loose skin, especially around the belly region.
A tummy tuck is a very safe and effective way to help you reach your body-contouring goals and get the flat and fabulous midriff that you’ve always dreamed of.
