It can be very disheartening when you try to attain your ideal body shape with exercise and a healthy diet and never see the desired result. Unfortunately, this is the reality for a lot of people who are struggling with their body image. Oftentimes, traditional weight loss methods are simply ineffective at removing stubborn fat deposits and getting rid of loose skin that can result from weight loss. A tummy tuck surgery could be the solution for individuals who are struggling with these weight loss issues. This procedure is extremely effective in eliminating localised fat deposits and removing loose skin that would have otherwise been very difficult to target. So, for those of you who have lost hope, there might yet be a solution!
During a tummy tuck, a surgeon will tighten the abdominal muscles that have been damaged by pregnancy or weight gain. These muscles have been strained for long periods of time and will struggle to recover from the damage they have received without surgical intervention. A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is able to help repair these damaged muscles. This will make the abdomen appear more flat and will help to reduce the protrusion of the stomach greatly. The procedure will not stop you from gaining weight in the future, so it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to keep your belly contoured.
Major weight loss can result in loose skin and an uneven body shape. A tummy tuck is able to target and remove fat deposits in the abdomen area, allowing the patient to shape their body in a certain way. This surgery is also effective in removing excess skin, which can be very hard to get rid of without surgery. The procedure can be customised to meet the specific needs of every individual.
There might be certain areas that you want to address or a certain body shape that you would prefer to have. Your surgeon will discuss all the options with you and advise you on which they deem to be best. An abdominoplasty is usually completed within 3 hours and is performed on an outpatient basis. However, patients should be aware that it could take up to 2 months for all the swelling to subside and the final results to be visible.
