Do you need an Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck
Sometimes after giving birth for a few times or maybe after a period of weight loss the tummy can refuse to gain it`s former shape.Some people wrongly assume that Abdominoplasty/tummy tuck can act as a substitute for traditional methods of losing weight such as following a healthy diet and exercising regularly.Although a tummy tuck most definately can improve a person’s overall appearance, abdominoplasty is not meant to be an effective means of achieving general weight loss.
Tummy tuck surgery, is in fact an operation to remove the excess fat and skin from your tummy area and to also tighten your abdominal muscles. It can lead to a tighter,firmer and flatter stomach and remove or at least reduce the appearance of stretch marks on your lower abdomen.Abdominoplasty can be used to remove the unsightly folds of skin that are sometimes left behind following dramatic weightloss and also help tighten skin and muscles that have become stretched following pregnancy.
