Every woman wants a flat, contoured tummy, but sometimes, this can seem impossible to achieve. Even regular diet and exercise cannot always improve the appearance of sagging skin and stubborn pockets of fat. If all of your efforts to shape your tummy have seemed in vain, tummy tuck surgery might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Tummy tuck surgery comes will several significant advantages, including:
- Removal of excess skin – After pregnancy or weight loss, many women are left with folds of loose, sagging skin. In rare cases, excess skin can be a health risk if the folds become infected. Tummy tuck surgery trims and removes this excess skin, eliminating both the cosmetic and health issues associated with it.
- Tighter abdominal muscles – Pregnancy and age can cause your abdominal muscles to stretch and separate at the midline of your belly. During a tummy tuck, these muscles are tightened to reduce sagging and restore muscle strength.
- Improved stretch marks – Since tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and tightens your remaining skin, any stretch marks you have below the navel are either reduced or completely eliminated.
- Long-lasting results – As long as you take good care of your body after surgery, your tummy tuck results will last for years to come. Most patients who maintain a healthy, active lifestyle enjoy their results for at least a decade, if not longer.
