To many people, there is no greater source of embarrassment than their stomach. A flabby, poorly defined belly can make you feel unhappy with your appearance, and abdominal laxity can make you feel older or less attractive than you are. Pregnancy and weight loss can permanently alter the look and feel of your stomach, which no amount of diet and exercise can fix. Choosing tummy tuck surgery is a proven way to achieve the flat, firm, youthful tummy you desire.
Many people are hesitant to consider surgery to achieve the body they want. It is often believed that motivation and hard work is the key to sculpting your body the way you want, but the truth is that dieting and the gym can only target specific causes of a poor appearance. When you’ve exhausted your other solutions, surgery can provide you with the body you want.
Flatten by Removing Excess Skin
Excess skin plays a significant role in the tone and quality of your abdominal contour. After pregnancy, many women have unwanted skin accumulation around the navel, and people often have extended folds of fat following weight loss. A tummy tuck trims away this excess skin, restoring a flatter contour to your stomach area.
Restore Firmness by Tightening the Muscles
A key problem, especially for post-pregnancy women, is laxity of the abdominal muscles. A protruding belly causes an abdominal pooch, which can cause otherwise fit women to lose the attractive definition of the abdomen. A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscles by using a corset technique, which restores the firm, toned appearance many women desire.
If you’re looking for more than a flatter belly and want improved curves, then liposuction in conjunction with your tummy tuck may be the right treatment for you. Minor deposits of fat can obstruct the definition of both the abdomen and the curves of your body. Removing this fat and sculpting your body allows you to achieve the improved body contour you’re looking for.
