Even with healthy eating and physical exercise you may still find yourself not happy with the appearance of your abdomen. Weight loss, gained through dieting and exercising, is an important part of overall health. Unfortunately, you may have discovered that your desired results haven’t been obtained in the midsection area. There are many reasons you may have saggy skin in this common problem area. These include; pregnancy, aging, heredity, and weight changes. If you are looking to improve the shape and overall look of your abdomen then you might want to consider a tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck your cosmetic surgeon will remove excess fat and also tighten the abdominal muscles, resulting in a flatter and firmer abdominal area. As with other cosmetic surgery treatments, the results of a tummy tuck are permanent and become more and more noticeable as you recover. Your plastic surgeon works with you hand in hand to plan the road to reach your goals for this part of your body.
