Diet and physical exercise can go a long way in achieving the look you want. But, you might 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 may not be able to achieve the results you want in this area. Sagging skin is one of the most common problems corrected with a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery treatment that improves the shape of the abdomen. 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. Changes become even more noticeable as your body recovers from the surgery and are permanent. Talk to a licensed plastic surgeon if you are looking to improve the appearance of your abdomen area. Your plastic surgeon will be able to help you plan the way to make it to your goal results.
