Over time, our bodies change, often in ways we're not happy about. While we recognize that a life well-lived may include some reminders left behind as hallmarks on our bodies, we don't always welcome them as "battle scars" well-earned. One of those may be a protruding or loose/sagging abdomen. This may come about for a variety of reasons, including the obvious reasons like pregnancy, fluctuating weight, or a prior surgery, but also simply due to the passage of time or heredity. Exercise and weight control may or may not help us to achieve our goals of a flatter, well-toned tummy. When they don't, we may need to look beyond to another solution: cosmetic surgery in the form of Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck.
The purpose of having an Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is to remove excess skin andor/ fat from the lower abdomen and/or to tighten the underlying muscles. This procedure can correct bulging due to abnormal stretching of the abdominal muscles and excess skin or fat. It can also remove the panniculus, that "apron" of skin and/or fat that may hang over lower abdomen. The extent of surgery depends on the amount of skin and fat as well as the laxity of the abdominal muscles. Symptoms such as low back pain, skin rashes, extended stretch marks, and abdominal discomfort may be relieved as a result of the procedure.
And the most obvious result of a tummy tuck? A slimmer profile, a flatter tummy, a more confident you. Check out the results of some of our tummy tuck patients in our before/after gallery.
Let us help you take that final step in returning to that flatter, toned tummy you've been striving for.
