Tighten Your Abdomen with a Tummy Tuck

You’re happy with your body for the most part, but you have a problem with your stomach. It’s flabby and there are deposits of fat that won’t go away. You’ve tried every type of exercise that targets the abdominal muscles. You watch what you eat in order to keep your calories down. While your efforts have helped you to have a healthy weight, they aren’t paying off when it comes to your biggest trouble spot. You can either surrender or you can consider surgical intervention. Dr. Lisa Bootstaylor is your partner when you are thinking about ways to enhance your stomach. A tummy tuck could be the answer for you.

When to Consider a Tummy Tuck

If you have flabby skin, unwanted fat and your abdominal muscles are loose, a tummy tuck is likely the best solution. You should only consider a tummy tuck if you are at a stable weight. Weight gain and pregnancy will change the shape of your stomach, reversing the results of your surgical procedure.

What Will Happen During Your Procedure?

The procedure will be tailored to meet your wants and needs. During a typical tummy tuck, excess skin and fat is removed and the abdominal muscles are tightened. The remaining skin will also be tightened in order to create a tight and toned midsection. You will have a flat, smooth stomach once your surgery is over and you have completely healed.

Is a Tummy Tuck the Right Decision for You?

In order to be a candidate for a tummy tuck, you need to be in good overall health. You also should not smoke. If you are a smoker, our surgeon will advise you to stop for a set amount of time before your procedure. It is also important to have realistic expectations regarding the procedure and the results.
