A smooth, firm stomach is a quality many women and men desire. However, it can be difficult for some to achieve this despite committing to a healthy diet and consistent fitness regimen alone, especially as the body’s metabolism decelerates with greater age. Other contributors that impact abdominal skin and fat include pregnancy and genetics. Abdominoplasty, or more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is an advanced solution that restores a toned, slimmer appeal to the abdomen. Dr. Kadz invites you to take the next step towards a more confident version of yourself by scheduling your initial consultation and discovering whether a tummy tuck may be the right solution for you.
What Is A Tummy Tuck?
An abdominoplasty, or more widely known as a tummy tuck, is an advanced aesthetic enhancement procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. A tummy tuck not only corrects a protruding abdomen, but it can also improve abdominal muscle strength that may have become compromised.. Some causes behind a protruding abdomen or weakened abdominal muscles can include:
- Obesity or weight fluctuations
- Previous surgery
Although being overweight can cause abdominal skin to sag as well as abdominal protrusion, many of those who opt for a tummy tuck are within healthy weight parameters for their sex and body size.
Patients can expect to receive general sedation or intravenous anesthesia based on the extent of their procedural extent and approach. Generally, the incisional form is determined by what you are looking to achieve through a tummy tuck.
How Much Weight Do You Lose After a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck can help women and men restore an abdominal contour that may have lost its firmness and shape due to age, genetics, fluctuations in weight, or otherwise. Although this procedure can significantly improve abdominal complexion, ideal candidates are those who have committed to proper dieting and exercise, and their weight is in or close to the normal range for their sex and height. It’s important to keep in mind that while a tummy tuck is permanent, it can be adversely affected by pregnancy, drastic weight loss, or any other fact that may lead to a shift in your weight.
In general, those considering any surgical procedure should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations about their results.
