At Georgia Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we understand the struggles of diet and exercise without results. Some waistline issues cannot be fixed through eating healthy and exercising consistently. If this sounds familiar, you may be considering a tummy tuck.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure. This procedure removes excess skin and fatty deposits from the abdominal area. In most cases, a re-positioning of the abdominal muscles is also performed. This re-positioning allows for a tighter bind between the muscles.
Many women experience a separation of the abdominal muscles during pregnancy. In some cases, these muscles merge back together, but in other cases, they do not, leaving a gap. This gap can be corrected through a tummy tuck procedure. The tummy tuck is ideal for those who are looking to improve the appearance and tightness of the stomach area.
Good Reasons to Have a Tummy Tuck
This procedure can permanently fix issues you have been working on for a long time. Most diet and exercise efforts are geared toward achieving a slender waistline and flat stomach. When this is the goal, it can be very discouraging when the desired results seem unattainable.
If you have experienced success with your weight loss efforts, you may be unhappy to realize that upon losing the weight, you are left with loose, sagging skin. This can also be discouraging, as this was not the look you were trying to achieve.
In these situations, surgically correcting the problems at the abdominal area is a great option for transforming your stomach. A tummy tuck procedure can quickly correct these issues which you have been struggling with for so long. You can finally achieve the look and confidence you were working toward.
