For some, wearing a bathing suit in public can cause self-consciousness and even stress due to areas of fat and sagging skin on the abdomen. Many patients experience these symptoms due to massive weight loss or pregnancy. A tummy tuck can greatly improve the abdominal contours, so you can feel confident with your body this summer.
Oftentimes, the abdominal muscles can become weakened and separated, especially when patients experience pregnancy. A tummy tuck can tighten these abdominal walls, while also removing excess fat and skin on the abdomen. This results in a slimmer body contour.
While there is some downtime required after a tummy tuck, patients find that recovery time is definitely worth the results and the many benefits associated.
Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
Individuals can experience many benefits after undergoing tummy tuck surgery. Not only can this procedure restore a flat tummy, patients can also look and feel better in clothing and swimwear. Gone will be the days when you miss out on fun in the sun! Also, any scarring produced will be hidden under the bikini line, and can easily be hidden from view.
Are You a Good Candidate?
If you have tried to rid yourself of excess abdominal fat and skin with diet and exercise to no avail, you may be a good tummy tuck candidate. Patients should be at a stable weight, be physically healthy, be finished having children, and not smoke to see optimal results.
