An abdominoplasty surgery, more commonly known as a tummy tuck surgery, is a surgical procedure that is specifically designed to give your abdomen a smoother and firmer appearance. The surgery itself generally involves the tightening of the abdominal muscles and the removal of excess fat and loose skin that is difficult to get rid of by simply exercising alone.
Over the years, we have found that there are two main causes for patients looking to have an abdominoplasty. Generally, we have found that anyone who has had a significant amount of weight loss opt for a tummy tuck surgery to help them to deal with the excess skin left behind and any stubborn fat that remains after their weight change. Specifically in women, the period after childbirth can often leave them unhappy and uncomfortable with how their body looks and if they are struggling to get their pre-pregnancy body back, a tummy tuck surgery is often the first choice.
When considering opting for an abdominoplasty surgery, it’s important to consider your other options first as abdominoplasty is often considered to be the last option. However, if you want a smoother, firmer and flatter abdomen then it is definitely worth considering abdominoplasty surgery.
