Many people are looking to a tummy tuck as a way to get rid of unwanted skin, excess fat, and create a body contour that’s more attractive. During your initial consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Katerina Gallus, we will be able to evaluate the appearance of your midsection and help you to see if a tummy tuck is the right procedure for you.
The modern standard of beauty is what encourages many people to want to do something about the excess fat and loose skin they have in their midsection. When both men and women look at models on the cover of magazines, they recognize that those individuals look attractive. They would love to have an appearance that’s similar to one of those models. However, for many individuals, this is not realistic.
Who is a good tummy tuck candidate?
That being said, individuals who have excess fat and excess skin on their body can do something to make themselves look more attractive. They can do something to make themselves look like the best version of themselves. Factors such as height, body shape, and genetics will play a role in the end results you will see after a tummy tuck. However, the vast majority of people who have a tummy tuck end up looking better and feeling better.
A tummy tuck is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, including a good diet and exercise. However, a tummy tuck can help to produce results that diet and exercise will not produce on their own. There are a lot of people who are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat around their midsection that they just cannot diet away. They cannot exercise away those love handles. In these cases, liposuction may also be used.
What issues can a tummy tuck address?
Some have put on weight after pregnancy. Others have lost a ton of weight but are still left with excess skin around their midsection. This makes them feel unattractive. Thankfully, a tummy tuck can fix these issues. During a tummy tuck procedure, loose abdominal muscles can be tightened. This adds to your slim appearance.
