Striving to get fit and eat healthy requires a lot of work. If you’ve been watching what you eat and exercising regularly, you should be proud of yourself. Even after all that effort, you may still find yourself to be not quite satisfied with the results. No matter how hard you work, you may still find your belly is not as firm as you’d like. This is common. It’s also something that can be remedied. Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic procedure that will help firm and tighten your abdominal muscles, giving you the sleek silhouette you’ve been working so hard for.
Overall Good Health
Tummy tuck is a relatively low-risk and safe procedure. However, it does require general anesthesia. That means your heart and lungs should be strong. In addition, it’s important that you don’t have any conditions that could complicate the healing process, such as connective tissue or autoimmune disorders. Also, those who are prone to developing thick or raised scars may not be best suited for abdominoplasty.
Abdominoplasty offers most people significant and noticeable results. You’ll likely have a much firmer midsection afterward. It is important to remember that there is a recovery process involved in this surgical procedure and that healing occurs gradually. Therefore, you’ll notice results slowly over time. In addition, you’ll need to continue living a healthy lifestyle of sensible eating and exercise in order to maintain your sleek new results.
Loose Abdominal Skin
The main purpose of this procedure is to remove excess abdominal skin. We employ a tumescent liposuction device so that more fat can be removed than in a traditional tummy tuck procedure, but the goal is still the removal of excess skin.
No Anticipated Weight Loss or Pregnancy
Pregnancy and significant weight loss are conditions that affect the skin’s elasticity. Therefore, undergoing a pregnancy or losing a great deal of weight in the future could have detrimental effects on the appearance of your tummy tuck, as these issues cause skin to sag. Prior to choosing abdominoplasty, you should be within 15 to 20 pounds of your ideal weight and not be planning future pregnancies.
These are some of the most important things to consider before deciding to have abdominoplasty at Bella Forma CSC & Medspa. If you meet these criteria, it’s likely you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure. You could be well on your way to achieving the summer-ready body you’ve been dreaming about.
