Tummy tucks are one of our most popular cosmetic procedures we perform due to the great results our patients have achieved. It’s a well known fact that even though you can reduce your body weight and fat by dieting and exercise, it still will not help improve loose/sagging skin or weak abdominal muscles. Our board certified doctors at Boris Cosmetic can help you achieve your desired body image as we have performed countless number of procedures with excellent results.
Men and woman who lose a lot of weight, or after pregnancy, and are left with a lot of excess skin on the abdomen or other areas of the body are a good candidate for Tummy Tuck procedure, if they are medically in good shape.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
Even though the main purpose of a tummy tuck is to remove an excess of fat and skin on the body and specifically around the abdomen area, it can also restore some muscle function in the lower abdomen. A flat abdomen is something many people try to obtain through exercise, and it’s often not possible to obtain these results with exercise and diet alone. And in some cases, when someone has lost a tremendous amount of weight, there is not another sensible option.
The surgery is particularly helpful to women who through pregnancy, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with slight obesity, can also be improved. Patients who intend to lose a lot of weight should postpone the surgery. Also, women who plan future pregnancies should wait, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy. An abdominoplasty is considered a permanent procedure and it’s important to note this procedure is very tailored to each individual person and provided on a needed basis. There are requirements you must meet before our doctors will agree to it, such as being physically fit and in good health.
