Are You A Good Candidate For A Tummy Tuck_

Many of us have wanted to change something about our body. A common change that many people want is to flatten their stomach. With tummy tuck surgery, getting the perfect stomach is achievable. Though cosmetic surgery can seem like a magical fix, not everyone is a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

What is Tummy Tuck Surgery?

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that targets loose skin and weakened muscles. Though diet and exercise can contribute to a flatter stomach, for some, getting rid of excess skin in the stomach may take more than sit-ups. Good candidates for the procedure are people who have stubborn stomach fat or excess abdomen skin. This could be a result of major weight loss, pregnancy, or the passage of time.

Tummy tuck process

The procedure requires stretched muscle and excess skin. Once the surgeon puts the patient to sleep using general anesthesia, they will make an incision at the bottom of the skin that covers the abdominal wall. Because the muscles in this area tend to be stretched out, the surgeon sews the muscles together so they’re tighter. They will trim off excess skin then pull the remaining skin over the abdomen so the stomach looks flatter. The incision is then closed with sutures.

After recovery, patients can enjoy their flatter stomach permanently. Their abdominal wall should be stronger and more stable. The excess skin should not return unless the patient’s weight fluctuates due to weight gain or pregnancy.
