Tummy Tuck: The Answer to Looking Great This Summer
As the weather turns warmer and thoughts return to sunny days, many of us are wondering what we might look like in short sleeves, shorts, and .....yes our bathing suits! A tummy tuck can be your answer to looking great this summer. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen and restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. Voila! Following abdominoplasty, you will be looking worlds better in all of your summer clothes.
An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck removes excess abdominal skin and small amounts of fat to help you achieve the flat and toned stomach you desire. Additionally, the procedure actually tightens the abdominal wall musculature.
A tummy tuck is targeted more at removing excess skin than fat. If excess fat is the primary problem, however, we may recommend liposuction as an alternative. In other cases, we may suggest combining liposuction and abdominoplasty to achieve the best results.
Abdominoplasty can address one or more of the following conditions:
- Localized, excess fat
- Loose skin and tissue
- Weakened abdominal muscles
