To look and be fit, you may do regular exercise and eat a healthy diet, but are still not able to have the flat, toned abdomen you crave. This is especially true after pregnancy or significant weight loss. No matter how hard you work, there is still fat and flab that does not budge. Fortunately, in Manhattan or New Jersey, you can get a cosmetic procedure called an abdominoplasty or what is commonly called a tummy tuck. The name perfectly describes the procedure as your abdomen is tightened and toned and the flab is neatly tucked away.
There are other reasons that your abdomen may not be as firm as you would like. Heredity, aging and prior surgery are all things that can leave the abdomen muscles weak. A tummy tuck restores weakened or separated muscles and removes the excess skin and fat. However, a tummy tuck is not recommended for people who do not exercise and who regularly have weight fluctuations or plan to have more children.
There are some factors to consider for being a good tummy tuck candidate. You should not smoke as this inhibits tissue regeneration and may block a full recovery. You should also have realistic expectations. During a consultation with our specialist, your abdomen may be examined and you can ask any questions you have. According to your unique body type, you may learn what results you can expect. You should be in good overall health and maintain a stable weight. If you fit all of the above and are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen, you are in luck. A tummy tuck could greatly improve your appearance and self-confidence.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that requires a recovery period. Our specialist will help you through it step by step. Make sure to take it as easy as possible and follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your procedure for a long time.
