Very few things are as frustrating as looking in the mirror and feeling like you no longer have control over the size or shape of your body. Issues such as loose skin and extra abdominal fat are very common, and many people have a tough time getting rid of them with dietary changes and exercise programs. Those are just a few of the reasons why hundreds of thousands of patients have tummy tuck procedures carried out every single year. This procedure allows our team to safely contour the midsection in order to create a slim and toned silhouette.
Our Ideal Tummy Tuck Candidate
Many people don’t realize that dieting and exercising won’t always help them reach their cosmetic goals. Over the years, a wide variety of issues will impact the appearance of your midsection, and some of those variables are completely out of your control. We believe that this procedure is a great option for patients who would like to gently sculpt the midsection and enhance their natural features. As long as you are relatively healthy and haven’t been diagnosed with any serious medical conditions, you will most likely make an excellent candidate.
Even though every tummy tuck is slightly different, most are carried out in a similar way. Dr. Scott may remove excess skin and fat and tighten the underlying abdominal muscles. From there, the remaining skin may be pulled tight in order to achieve a toned, flat midsection.
What a Tummy Tuck Can Do
In order to enjoy the best results, we believe that our patients need to have realistic expectations. Our surgeon can remove some fat during a tummy tuck, but you should be close to your ideal weight before the procedure is carried out. Tummy tucks are permanent as long as you stay at a healthy weight, but you must be devoted to changing your lifestyle habits.
The Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck can change your life forever as long as you are willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Ongoing studies continue to show us that this procedure has a very high success rate, and the vast majority of patients are satisfied with the results many years later. A tummy tuck might be just what you need to finally overcome the last few issues that are holding you back from achieving your cosmetic goals.
