Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles to create an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control, yet sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
- Significant fluctuations in weight
- Previous surgery
A tummy tuck is an operation that can dramatically improve these changes through a combination of tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin. With this procedure, patients can have a more defined waist, a slimmer profile, a more proportionate body contour, and better clothing fit. This can be an appropriate operation for thin patients, heavy patients, and patients of all sizes in between.
Tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
Although the results of an abdominoplasty procedure are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies may be advised to postpone abdominoplasty surgery.
