Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Benefits
Improved Body Contour:
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is designed to create a flatter and firmer abdominal profile, enhancing your overall body contour and boosting your confidence.
Removal of Excess Skin and Fat:
Abdominoplasty effectively removes stubborn areas of fat and loose, sagging skin that are resistant to diet and exercise, making it an ideal procedure for those seeking to improve their abdominal appearance.
During the procedure, weakened or separated abdominal muscles can be repaired and tightened, which not only improves the shape of the abdomen, but also can improve posture and alleviate associated discomfort.
Reduced Stretch Marks:
While not its primary purpose, abdominoplasty can potentially reduce the appearance of stretch marks, particularly those located on the lower abdomen, by removing the skin on which they are located.
Many patients report increased self-confidence and self-esteem following their abdominoplasty procedure, thanks to the enhanced body image and comfort in their appearance that the procedure provides.
Are You a Candidate for Abdominoplasty?
At the Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Joanne Lopes carefully evaluates each individual to ensure they’re a good fit for abdominoplasty. Ideal candidates are those who are in good overall health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the procedure’s results.
Abdominoplasty is particularly beneficial for women who, after pregnancies, are left with excess skin and a relaxed abdominal wall. Similarly, individuals who have experienced significant weight loss and now have loose, hanging skin around their abdomen can greatly benefit from this procedure.
While a tummy tuck is a powerful procedure for shaping and defining the abdomen, it’s important to remember that it’s not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program.
Dr. Lopes encourages anyone considering abdominoplasty to schedule a consultation. In a relaxed and confidential setting, she can discuss your goals and concerns, examine your physical condition, and give you a clear understanding of how abdominoplasty might work for you. Together, you’ll decide on the best course of action to achieve your desired results.
