Top 3 Reasons to Consider a Tummy Tuck

The abdominal area is a source of frustration and self-consciousness for many people. Loose skin in this area will not disappear, even if you lose weight. A tummy tuck removes excess abdominal fat and skin for a flatter belly. It also has a number of other benefits that make this procedure worth considering, including some you might not expect. 

What is a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)? 

An abdominoplasty, generally known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure that tightens and flattens the abdomen. A tummy tuck can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures, and it is a key part of a mommy makeover. Post-pregnancy loose skin is one of the most common reasons for seeking a tummy tuck. Significant weight loss can also cause loose abdominal skin.

Top 3 Reasons to Consider a Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck does much more than just remove excess skin. The procedure reshapes your entire abdominal area and can even improve your health

A More Sculpted Figure

An abdominoplasty removes loose skin and excess fat, repositions the belly button, and creates more sculpted contours. Dr. Brenman addresses the entire abdomen to achieve a pleasing overall shape. Removing overhanging skin and fat can make you look noticeably slimmer, and the removal of this unbalancing weight can even make you stand up straighter. 

Abdominal Muscle Repair

Pregnancy or significant weight changes can cause the abdominal muscles to separate. This separation contributes to the appearance of that hard-to-lose abdominal “pooch.” It can also affect your posture and even contribute to the development of a hernia. A tummy tuck repairs this problem for a flat, stronger core. 

Increased Confidence

With an incision that you can usually hide even in a bikini, a tummy tuck can give you the confidence to wear and do more of the things you enjoy. Most people find that abdominoplasty gives them a tremendous boost of confidence. Many find that it helps motivate them to make other positive changes in their lives.

What Is Recovery Like From a Tummy Tuck?

You should be prepared to spend time recovering from your tummy tuck. Trying to rush your recovery could cause complications and affect your results. Most people can return to work after two to three weeks. You can resume light activities after about four weeks and more intensive activities after about six weeks. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Good candidates for abdominoplasty want to achieve a flatter, slimmer stomach. Ideal candidates have reasonable expectations and no major health problems. A tummy tuck is an excellent option for those with loose skin and fat that cannot be eliminated with diet or exercise. 

This visit was a pleasure! Dr. Brenman thoroughly explained my options and did seem rushed. He answered all my questions and made me comfortable with making my decision. Gina was friendly and helpful in facilitating scheduling etc. I feel confident in my choice.
