We love our babies more than anything…but pregnancy can do a number on our bodies. Even with exercise and eating healthy, sometimes that baby pooch just won’t go away. Abdominoplasty, or what most people know of as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgery that helps to flatten the stomach by removing excess fat and skin. After extreme weight loss or multiple pregnancies, stomach muscles can extend, and diet and exercise seem to do nothing. A tummy tuck surgically tightens weak muscles, and helps you achieve a more contoured appearance by diminishing fat deposits and loose skin.
Dr. Bridgett Moore says that often times, tummy tucks are paired with another procedure offered at Azalea Plastic Surgery Center – liposuction. When paired together, patients can achieve a refined and desirable shape. Liposuction also removes unwanted fat deposits by inserting small suction tubes into tiny incisions made in the problem areas. Liposuction can be applied to many areas of the body, including: your thighs, hips, abdomen, legs, arms, breasts, neck and face.
For both of these procedures, the ideal candidate is a healthy individual who is at a stable weight. These procedures should not be used as a form of weight loss. Women who plan to have more children or anyone that plans to lose a more significant amount of weight should consider waiting before undergoing a tummy tuck procedure.
