Why Now is the Best Time for a Tummy Tuck
If it feels like you’ve been fighting for forever to flatten your waistline, you’re not alone. Women and men everywhere struggle with stubborn belly fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise. Whether you are plagued by stubborn fat, loose skin, diastasis recti, or all three, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) can help you finally achieve the body contours you desire.
Tummy tuck surgery recontours the waistline by eliminating persistent localized belly fat, trimming away loose skin, and tightening the muscles of the stomach wall. Because this is a major surgery, figuring out the ideal timing for your procedure can be a challenge. Here are some of the reasons why the best time for a tummy tuck could be now.
You Know What You Want
Look at where you’ve come from, where you’re at, and where you want to be. Many challenges of life such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging can leave you with permanent physical “baggage”. Do you want to continue literally carrying that extra weight for the rest of your life? Once you have decided that abdominoplasty is something you really want, don’t postpone living the life of your dreams. Start the process so that you can get to enjoying your results—and the rest of your life—as soon as possible.
Lifestyle Changes Haven’t Worked
If you’ve been considering a tummy tuck, chances are you already know that lifestyle changes don’t always work. You’ve tried watching your diet, and you’ve tried exercising faithfully. You’ve probably been doing these things for months or even years without seeing the results you want. Lifestyle changes may help you lose weight, but they can’t guarantee you lose all that belly fat. Moreover, diet and exercise simply cannot do anything to correct excess skin or separated stomach muscles. Sometimes surgery is the only way, and there’s no point wasting time pursuing alternative methods that aren’t working or will never work.
It’s the Perfect Time of Year
It’s the beginning of autumn, and this season is the perfect time of year to get a tummy tuck. Swimsuit season is barely over and the weather is turning chilly, which makes it easy to cover up during recovery and protect your tummy tuck scars from sun exposure while they heal. It also gives your body plenty of time to heal so that you’ll be ready for the upcoming seasons. You’ll have time to rest and recover before the end-of-year holidays, not to mention enjoying the snow! Getting your tummy tuck now puts you in the perfect position to be fully recovered and ready for ski season so you can get out there on the slopes. This autumn could be the best time for you to get a tummy tuck. Schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Richard Mouchantat to learn more about how abdominoplasty could change your life.
