After losing a lot of weight and finally reaching your desired weight loss goals, you may have extra tummy skin, which can make things look a little flabby. After all the hard work you’ve put in, it’s time to finish the process and get your desired look. A tummy tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty, can help remove this excess skin and help you get your desired look. Here is everything you need to know about Abdominoplasty.
What is an Abdominoplasty Procedure?
An Abdominoplasty procedure, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure that helps remove loose and excess skin around the tummy. Occurring in the lower portion of the abdominal area, loose and excess skin can commonly be the case for those who have rapid or significant weight loss results.
During the procedure, a long, thin, and horizontal incision is made on the waistline, and it is done along the waistline. The length and width of the incision line can vary from person to person as it depends on a few different variables such as how much skin is being removed, desired results, etc. After that is determined, the surgeon will then contour the muscles, tissue, and skin in the area to help provide a more natural look.
Am I a Good Candidate For Abdominoplasty?
Great candidates for a tummy tuck procedure are those who have good skin elasticity, good general health and do not smoke. This procedure is great for individuals looking to flatten and tone out their tummy and remove excess skin in the process.
This procedure may not be suitable for those who have lung, liver, or heart disease. This may also not be the right procedure for you if you plan on getting pregnant or are currently still on your weight loss journey. It is best to schedule a consultation to see if an Abdominoplasty procedure is right for you.
After your procedure, you’ll want to maintain your stunning results. Exercising frequently and maintaining a healthy diet can help prevent gaining any more weight and maintain your tummy tuck results. It is important to avoid sugars, eat moderately, and avoid starchy food as much as possible. Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest to not only maintain tuck results but to feel energized as well.
