Healthy eating and physical exercise can go a long way in achieving the appearance you want. But, you may find that certain problem areas persist. One of these common “problem areas” is the abdomen. Though losing weight and physical exercise are important for your overall health they might not be able to achieve the results you wish 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. If you are wanting to improve the shape and overall look of your stomach area then you may want to think about a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck flattens the abdomen by removing fat and improving abdominal muscles by making them tighter. 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’re considering a tummy tuck, speak with your plastic surgeon as soon as possible.
