No matter how many times you work out every week or how many salads you order for lunch, you can still have trouble with toning your stomach. It’s a problem area for so many men and women. You are not alone. This especially holds true if you have lost a great deal of weight already and have reached your goal weight, but you still have excess skin hanging on. Your skin has been stretched to the limit and it just doesn’t want to snap back to where it should be. A tummy tuck can help you to take your body exactly where you want it to go.
How Can a Tummy Tuck Help You?
You may have thought that the only reason to have a tummy tuck was to get rid of extra fat hanging around your midsection. While this procedure can eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that tend to cling to your stomach, it can do so much more. It can tighten the underlying muscles that may have become so loose over time that they won’t respond to your exercises. A tummy tuck can also eliminate any excess skin that you may have around your stomach, trimming you down to the size that you want to be.
What Can You Expect During a Tummy Tuck?
The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient since each individual is unique. However, during a typical tummy tuck, excess skin is removed. Our experienced plastic surgeon may also remove excess fat. Special tools can be used to tighten the muscles. Finally, the skin will be pulled down to tighten the stomach. The end result is that flat stomach that you have been working so hard to achieve. You’ll finally be rid of that bothersome skin that was hanging down before.
Continue to be diligent about being active and eating a healthy diet in order to maintain your toned stomach. A tummy tuck is not intended as a weight loss measure, but rather helps you to sculpt your figure when you have reached the weight that you want to be.
