Even with healthy eating and physical exercise you might still find yourself dissatisfied with the body of your mid-section. 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. There are many reasons you may have sagging skin in this common trouble zone. These include; pregnancy, aging, heredity, and weight changes. The goal of a tummy tuck is to improve the overall shape of the abdomen. A tummy tuck flattens the stomach by removing fat and improving abdominal muscles by tightening them. The end result is that the area is flat and firmer. Changes become even more noticeable as your body recovers from the procedure and are permanent. If you are looking for a solution for this part of your appearance, then talk to your cosmetic surgeon about the benefits of getting a tummy tuck.
