You have done everything you can think of to trim your figure to get the body that will make you happy. It’s been challenging, but you have been dedicated. You hit the gym and eat healthy foods that are good for you. You are determined to earn your figure. There is only one problem. It is your abdomen. Everything else is cooperating. You are at your ideal weight. Your legs and arms are toned. Your backside looks good. But your tummy is another story. It has fat and loose skin that won’t respond to all of the things you have tried to do. Abdominoplasty could be the answer for you.
When to Choose Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure that takes you a step further than liposuction. Liposuction is commonly used to remove deposits of resistant fat. If you are only dealing with fat in your midsection, liposuction could be the better option for you. However, if your muscles are loose and you have excess skin hanging around, abdominoplasty is the preferred choice.
Consider abdominoplasty after extreme weight loss when your body has become smaller, but fat and skin remain from the time when you were a larger size. Abdominoplasty is helpful to mothers who struggle to get their pre-baby figures back. If your abdomen is the main problem area, abdominoplasty could be the right solution for you.
It is important to remember that abdominoplasty is not a solution if you need to lose weight. If you are not happy with your weight, you should tackle that problem first. Wait until your weight is stable to have the best results after your tummy tuck.
