Even with diet and physical exercise you might still find yourself unhappy with the appearance of your mid-section. Weight loss, achieved through eating well and exercising, is a very important part of overall health. Unfortunately, you might have discovered that your goal results haven’t been obtained in the midsection area. There are many reasons you might have sagging skin in this common problem area. These include; pregnancy, aging, heredity, and weight changes. The purpose of a tummy tuck is to improve the overall shape of the abdomen. A tummy tuck flattens the midsection by removing fat and improving abdominal muscles by making them tighter. The end goal is that the area is flat and firmer. As your body heals from surgery, the improvement becomes more and more noticeable. If you’re seeking a solution for this part of the body, then talk to your cosmetic surgeon about the benefits of getting a tummy tuck.
