You might have tried healthy eating and physical exercise, but still be dissatisfied with the appearance of your abdominal area. Though losing weight and physical exercise are important for your overall health they might not be able to achieve the results you want in this area. Sagging skin is one of the most common problems treated with a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that improves the shape of the abdominal region. During a tummy tuck your plastic surgeon will remove excess fat and also tighten the abdominal muscles, resulting in a flatter and firmer abdominal region. As your body recovers from surgery, the improvement becomes more and more noticeable. If you’re considering a tummy tuck, speak with your cosmetic surgeon as soon as possible.
