Whether from general weight gain or pregnancy, you may feel stuck with stubborn body fat that seems to accumulate around the abdomen and hips. While a nutritious and healthy diet and frequent exercise can help reduce excess fat and weight, some people may find this is not enough for them and choose to undergo cosmetic surgery.
Many procedures are available to help permanently remove stubborn body fat and help you achieve your target weight. These range in how invasive they are, and which is best for you depends greatly on the amount of body fat you hope to lose.
If a significant amount of body fat is removed, the skin around the treatment area may have stretched to the point it may not return to the tight and toned look you expect. This excess skin can look wrinkled and create folds and creases. Thankfully, a tummy tuck procedure can help remove this excess skin and give you a look you were hoping for.
When combined with another surgical procedure, such as liposuction, there is not a significant addition to the recovery plan you will already follow. However, you will need to pay close attention to the incision area to minimize the scarring that will occur.
If performed on its own, it is important to know that although some fat cells may be removed, the removal of body fat and reduction in the overall size of your abdomen is not the primary goal of a tummy tuck procedure.
A tummy tuck surgery is best performed as a stand-alone procedure for those who are at their target body weight and do not struggle with excess body fat but want to simply get rid of loose skin.
