Whether you have sagging skin around your midsection after weight loss, or a protruding stomach after pregnancy, surgery may be the most effective way to achieve a flat and toned abdomen. Many men and women struggle with firming and tightening the midsection as they get older, and this area can become even more problematic if you have had children or lost a lot of weight over your lifetime. A tummy tuck can reshape your entire midsection and restore your youthful silhouette. Here are just three ways tummy tuck surgery can enhance your figure: #1: Gets rid of excess skin around the abdomen. If your skin has stretched and become loose after multiple pregnancies, or from carrying excess weight for some time, you may be a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery. This procedure involves removing excess skin around the midsection to create a slimmer contour of your body. We can tighten and tone this area by removing excess skin to create a taut appearance. #2: Flattens the stomach. If protruding or outstretched abdominal muscles are preventing you from feeling confident in certain types of clothing, you may be a great candidate for tummy tuck surgery. The procedure may involve repositioning and tightening the stomach muscles to give you a flatter and more sculpted midsection. #3: Reshapes the waistline. We can perform tummy tuck surgery in conjunction with liposuction to reshape the waistline and better contour the body. If you have some excess fatty deposits around the waistline and abdomen, liposuction will remove those stubborn pockets of fat to create a more defined waist. This can be especially beneficial to patients who have a rounded belly or “apple” body shape.
