Formally known as abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck is a popular surgical procedure performed to get rid of excess skin on the abdomen. It’s perhaps the most effective way to tighten skin that has become loose due to:
- Major weight fluctuation
How Tummy Tucks Work
The tummy tuck is achieved through incisions near the pubic area. The surgeon tightens the muscles making the abdomen firmer and narrower and then stretches the skin and removes any excess. After only a few hours, the surgery should be complete, and the body will be sporting its young curves after a short recovery.
Safety and Recovery
The procedure is safe with few expected negative side effects. In fact, you can expect to start enjoying your fresh and rejuvenated figure after only 4-6 weeks recovering at home. Any other concerns or questions can be consulted with your doctor.
Is the Tummy Tuck for You?
The process begins by consulting your doctor. This will be the time to ask questions, set goals, and understand all benefits and risks. As your doctor will most likely inform you, the tummy tuck will not by itself enhance your state of health.
