Many individuals struggle with natural means of weight loss such as diet and exercise. If you would like to achieve a more slender midsection, you may be an ideal candidate for tummy tuck surgery. If you are in the Orlando area, a qualified plastic surgeon can help you reach your desired body contour with this procedure.
What is tummy tuck surgery?
Tummy tuck surgery (“abdominoplasty”) can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen caused by pregnancy, massive weight loss, and/or aging. Your tummy tuck surgeon will thoroughly examine the area to be treated in order to determine which technique will most beneficial. Based on the amount of protrusion and excess, sagging skin, a tradition, mini, extended, or circumferential abdominoplasty will be chosen.
Usually, a long incision in the lower abdomen is made from hipbone to hipbone in order to separate the skin from the underlying muscle. Your plastic surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscles, pull the skin down, make a new opening for the belly button, and trim away excess skin. This produces a more slender and better contoured shape.
In addition to tummy tuck surgery, women who have experienced pregnancy and would like to regain an overall more youthful contour often combine other procedures. In what is commonly termed a “Mommy Makeover,” liposuction and breast lift with augmentation are performed with a tummy tuck procedure.
