The flat stomach is one of the most desired looks, while also being one of the hardest to achieve. When we gain weight, the tummy is often one of the first areas affected, and last to see a change. You may have worked hard and achieved a significant amount of weight loss, but still have excess skin or stubborn fat that just won’t go away?
This is where the tummy tuck, or mini tummy tuck, comes in. This procedure may be appropriate to help you achieve the stomach you desire. The primary goal of the tummy tuck procedure is improving the appearance of your abdomen, read on to learn more about how it does that.
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
The tummy tuck procedure tightens the stomach area to create a more toned look. It can eliminate stretched or excess skin that may droop over your waistband, giving your stomach a much larger appearance than necessary.
For some women who have just had a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles may have separated, stretching the skin, creating a bulge. The issue of the bulge affects both men and women, which is why the tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty procedure, is often of significant benefit to all.
What Is Involved with the Tummy Tuck Procedure?
There are various options for tummy tuck surgery to suit the different severity of skin laxity and the amount of abdominal fat. All tummy tuck procedures are performed under general anaesthesia.
The mini tummy tuck is a less invasive procedure in which a small amount of skin is removed above the pubic area with or without liposuction depending on the patient’s needs. A full tummy tuck runs from hip bone to hip bone and involves excess skin being removed, with the remaining skin pulled down, and the navel relocated to an appropriate position.
