When Tummy Tucks Are Most Beneficial
A tummy tuck, or an abdominoplasty, can help remove excess fat or skin tissue around the midsection, leaving behind a tighter, smoother stomach. This procedure is particularly popular among people who have recently lost a significant amount of weight around their midsection and among new mothers who have been unable to get rid of post-pregnancy stomach weight. However, there are many other people who may also benefit from the look that a tummy tuck can provide.
When to Consider a Tummy Tuck
Getting a tummy tuck can help many different people achieve the look and feel that they have been hoping for. In fact, tummy tucks may be most beneficial to people who have:
- A protrusion from the midsection
- Excess skin on the abdomen
- Excess fat bulging in the abdomen
- Separated and weakened muscles in the abdomen
- A disproportionately large midsection
- Pockets of fat grouped around the abdomen
- Sagging muscle tissue around the midsection
However, it is important to know that there are some candidates who may have certain health concerns or factors that they should discuss with a plastic surgeon before beginning this procedure, as those previous conditions may affect their results or eligibility for the surgery.
