Manhattan, New York (PressExposure) November 26, 2009 -- The tummy tuck would come as a welcome procedure for those desirous of having a trimmer, firmer and greater looking abdomen. Also known by the name âabdominoplasty,â the tummy tuck ensures a flatter midsection by the tightening of the abdominal muscles and removal of excessive skin and fat. It lessens the amount of fat, as well as flabby, and loose skin.
Tummy Tuck to the Rescue
The tummy tuck is an ideal solution for stubborn surplus fat that is unresponsive to exercise and a controlled diet. Listed below are two examples of people who can benefit from the tummy tuck procedure:
Those Who Have Had a Pregnancy
Many women who have had one or more deliveries feel unhappy because of the loss of their pre-pregnancy shape. Pregnancy, though an otherwise wonderful experience, adversely affects skin elasticity and muscle tone and causes stretch marks. A tummy tuck would correct sagging skin and tighten the stretched areas, thereby restoring the patientâs body contour.
Those Who Have Lost a Lot of Weight
The tummy tuck can correct the flaccidity that follows the loss of a substantial amount of weight.
An abdominoplasty can also correct excess skin and abdominal roundness caused by a genetic predisposition, or natural aging.
The tummy tuck should not be considered as a procedure for losing weight. Candidates for the treatment are either already their normal weight or quite close to it. Further, it is important that the patient discusses not just the advantages and cost but also the side effects and risks of the procedure with the concerned practitioner before deciding to go for it. Nevertheless, it canât be denied that the tummy tuck is a wonderful way to get one step closer to that âto die forâ figure.
