No matter how many crunches, long runs, and diets, the tummy can still be a problem area. Over time it can be difficult to maintain the flat and defined abdominal area that may have been present in youth. A variety of factors contribute to this change, but regardless of the reason, Shumway Cosmetic Surgery in San Diego, California can help. The tummy tuck abdominoplasty procedure can give you the stomach and midsection you desire.
The tummy tuck surgery, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a procedure to remove extra fat and unnecessary skin around the abdomen while simultaneously strengthening the weak or separated muscles in the stomach. This creates a tummy that is smoother, firmer and more youthful looking.
People who are not overweight can still have a sagging tummy that is loose and protruding. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including the effects of age (and gravity), your gene pool, pregnancy, surgical procedures and past fluctuations in weight.
A tummy tuck procedure is not a weight loss substitute. If you find that you have significant fluctuations in your weight, you can damage the results of the procedure. These weight fluctuations include pregnancy, so if you plan on becoming pregnant in the future the tummy tuck procedure is not for you.
Right after the abdominoplasty, you will have swelling around the stomach and the inability to stand until you are fully healed. This usually last for one to two weeks, and once healed you will find a smooth, firm and flat tummy that looks and feels great! There will be a scar, but it will fade in a few months, and at most a year.
