Are you a resident of Houston that is fighting a sagging, drooping tummy? Do you have the post-baby “pooch”? Or excess skin hanging over your waistline? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you may be an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck procedure!
Most people are aware of what a tummy tuck procedure does for you, but you may not be aware that it is one of the most popular body contouring procedures that is being performed around the world today. Its popularity has grown by leaps and bounds. Hundreds of thousands of the procedures are performed every year, to the great satisfaction of the recipients.
Reduce the size and Trim your Waistline
The reason for the upsurge in tummy tuck surgery over the last several years is that it is a solution to a problem that is unaffected by traditional weight loss methods. As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin. If we undergo significant weight gain, our skin can be stretched considerably. When we lose weight, our skin doesn’t always revert to normal.
The same thing can occur with pregnancy and childbirth. A woman’s tummy can be stretched, and once the baby is born, mommy may be left with a “pooch” or drooping skin. No amount of sit-ups will reduce excess skin. No weight loss diet will have an impact. Therefore, people are turning more and more to a tummy tuck to achieve what diet and regular exercise will not, and that is a trim waistline.
Achieving a Smaller Waist
Tummy tuck surgery has seen some major advancements in technology, and improvements in techniques. This is reflected in how effective and safe the procedure has become. Plastic surgeons have gained a great deal of experience with the surgery, and have used their expertise to refine the procedures and thereby enhancing the outcomes.
Most people who had the surgery are extremely happy with the results, and report that they would happily recommend the procedure to anyone who may benefit from it. Those benefits include some weight loss from the removal of the excessive fat and skin, a stronger abdominal muscle, and a flatter and firmer tummy.
Getting Your Ideal Body
Your surgeon makes an incision from hip to hip between your pubic area and your navel. The incision will leave a scar, but your underwear or bikini bottom will hide it. They will then begin to remove the excess skin and fat. If needed, the abdominal muscles are tightened. After this, the remaining skin is pulled together, and the incision is sutured, leaving you a flatter tummy.
You should make sure that you only select a plastic surgeon that is board-certified. A board-certified plastic surgeon is held to a higher standard and has additional training and expertise. They have a great deal of experience in performing cosmetic surgery, thus ensuring that the procedure is as safe and effective as possible.
