You might have attempted diet and physical exercise, but still be unsatisfied with the look of your abdominal area. Weight loss, achieved through eating well and exercising, is an important part of overall health. Unfortunately, you might have found that your goal results haven’t been obtained in the midsection area. There are a lot of causes of saggy skin, a common issue corrected with a tummy tuck, including: weight loss, aging, and pregnancy. The goal of a tummy tuck is to improve the overall shape of the abdomen. Your cosmetic surgeon will fix your abdominal muscles while at the same time removing extra fat. This process creates a flatter and firmer stomach region. Changes become even more noticeable as your body recovers from the procedure and are permanent. Your plastic surgeon works with you hand in hand to plan the path to reach your goals for this area of your appearance.
