Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Description and Benefits:
Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is an operation designed to remove the unnecessary and unwanted skin and fat from the abdomen. The result after this kind of surgery is a flatter, smoother, and well-toned belly. It is ideal for the excess that you can’t still get rid of after regular and serious exercise training. The excess of adipo-cutaneous tissue in the belly is usually due to fluctuation in weight, after pregnancy or even aging.
A tummy tuck will give you a flatter and a firmer abdomen. Your surgeon will make sure to have it as proportionate as possible to your body type and shape. It is important to maintain a healthy and steady diet after the surgery and not inflict your body to fluctuating weight gain and loss.
Who can have this surgery?
If you have gone through several pregnancies, have lost a considerable amount of weight or have extra skin and fat on the abdominal area, then you are a candidate for an abdominoplasty. This type of surgery is ideal for a normal weight person that is not planning to lose or gain weight in the near future.
