Excess fat around your midsection is an all too common issue for many people. Diet, genetics and pregnancy are all factors that can have an impact on elasticity of skin and amount of fat around your belly. While exercise and dieting can be effective in reducing abdominal fat, it can be frustrating spending hours at the gym to find that there are stubborn areas that you just can’t slim down. This is where an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, comes in.
Whether you’re trying to reclaim your figure after having a baby or just trying to make sure you look your best for swimsuit season, a tummy tuck can reshape your waistline and leave you with a body you feel great about.
After pregnancy is a common time to have a tummy tuck performed. Due to the amount of stretching that typically occurs around the abdomen during pregnancy, many women find that their bodies after delivery aren’t what they once were. By removing the excess stretched skin and tightening the muscles across the tummy, your surgeon can sculpt your midline to create a firmer, smoother appearance that can look as naturally shaped as before your pregnancy.
Tummy Tuck Benefits
The benefits of a tummy tuck can include removing fat from your belly, as well as tightening and firming up your midsection by adjusting ligament structures to tighten the muscles underneath the skin. While results can depend on how much loose skin and excess fat you have around your tummy, most patients will see excellent results from the combination of these techniques.
