When you want a tight and toned midsection, sometimes you need a little bit of help. For many individuals who have worked hard to lose weight, folds of skin and fatty tissue can collect that no amount of exercise and diet will remove. At Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute in Glendale, a tummy tuck from one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can help you complete your appearance goals.
What a Tummy Tuck Can Do for You
While tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) is not a weight loss solution, it can be an ideal procedure once patients have achieved their target weight. For some patients, the circumstances can be dramatic. After a significant weight loss, it is common for excess skin and fat to develop around the abdomen. A tummy tuck removes the unwanted tissue, providing a tighter appearance and a more toned look to the stomach and its muscles that can be nearly impossible to accomplish with exercise alone.
Tummy Tuck Candidates
Because a tummy tuck is most beneficial for individuals who are at or near their ideal weight, it is not recommended for patients who are not yet at a stable weight. This includes women who are planning on becoming pregnant in the future. Any weight changes to the body after a tummy tuck procedure may end up reversing the results of the treatment.
If you’re unsure if a tummy tuck is right for you, our expert staff at Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute can help you figure out the best approach for achieving your ideal goals.
