Even with healthy eating and physical exercise you might still find yourself dissatisfied with the body of your abdomen. 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 achieved in the abdominal area. Sagging skin is one of the top common problems treated with a tummy tuck. The goal of a tummy tuck is to improve the overall shape of the stomach area. Your plastic surgeon will fix your abdominal muscles while simultaneously removing extra fat. This process creates a flatter and firmer abdomen area. As your body heals from surgery, the improvement becomes dramatically more noticeable. If you are considering a tummy tuck, speak with your cosmetic surgeon as soon as possible.
