Even with diet and physical exercise you might still find yourself dissatisfied with the body of your abdomen. Weight loss, achieved through dieting and exercising, is a very important part of overall health. Unfortunately, you might have found that your desired results haven’t been obtained in the abdomen area. There are a lot of causes of sagging skin, a common problem corrected with a tummy tuck, including: weight loss, aging, and pregnancy. If you’re wanting to improve the shape and overall look of your stomach area then you may 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 stomach area. Changes become even more noticeable as your body recovers from the surgery and are permanent. Speak with a licensed plastic surgeon if you’re looking to improve the look of your abdominal region. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to help you plan the way to achieve your desired results.
