Are you self-conscious about the appearance of your stomach because of excess skin and some stubborn deposits of fat? If so, a tummy tuck may be able to help restore your abdomen and self-confidence.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a type of plastic surgery procedure that involves flattening the abdomen through the removal of excess skin and some fat. The muscles can also be tightened during the procedure.
This type of surgery is appropriate for those with stubborn fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. The procedure can enhance the appearance of the abdominal area, helping it to look tight and toned.
What is Involved in a Tummy Tuck Procedure?
If you are undergoing a tummy tuck procedure, you will be put under general anesthesia. Prior to your surgery, you will be informed about any risks that are associated with the procedure and advised to refrain from taking certain medications or supplements that may interfere with the healing process.
The time it takes to complete a procedure varies depending upon how complex the procedure needs to be. The exact details of the procedure vary as well. However, during a typical procedure, excess skin and fat are removed and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened using specialized techniques.
It is important to understand that since this is a surgical procedure, it does require a recovery period. You will be provided with details regarding healing. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy your results for years to come as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
