Do you have stubborn abdominal fat although you eat right and exercise regularly? A tummy tuck can give you the flatter, smoother abdomen you desire. But how do you know if you are a candidate for a tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a procedure that’s done to tone and tighten the abdominal region, by removing excess skin and fat. Recovery after tummy tuck surgery takes about 6 weeks in general.
How do you know if you are a candidate for a tummy tuck?
If you are otherwise healthy and near your ideal weight, but have excess abdominal skin that you can’t eliminatewith a healthy lifestyle, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. It’s the ideal procedure for people that eat well and exercise regularly, but are unable to get rid of that extra abdominal fat.
Women that are done having children but have increased skin laxity and surplus skin in the lower abdomen, are generally good candidates. That’s why a tummy tuck is often included in a mommy makeover after pregnancy.
If your tummy bulge makes you unhappy about how you look in clothes or swimwear, a tummy tuck may be right for you. Take the time to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to find out for sure. The surgeon will review your specific needs, and decide if a tummy tuck is the best way to address your aesthetic concerns.
