Sometimes diet and exercise are just not enough to achieve that flat, well-toned abdomen we all want.
The highly-skilled beauty professionals at Georgetown Plastic Surgery can help, providing you a new abdominal profile with a tummy tuck.
How does a tummy tuck work?
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened or separated muscles giving you a smoother and firmer middle section. The procedure generally requires a horizontal incision in the area between the pubic hairline and navel; the shape and length of which is determined by the amount of correction desired. Through this opening, Dr. Staebel will repair weakened abdominal muscles and remove excess fat, tissue and skin.
What benefits can I expect from a tummy tuck?
This procedure flattens your abdomen by removing extra fat and skin and tightening the muscles of your abdominal wall, giving you a taunt, flat tummy.
Am I a good candidate for a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck may be a good option for you if:
- Your weight is relatively stable and are not significantly overweight
- You do not have a medical condition that impairs healing or increases surgical risk
- You do not smoke
- You have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
While the results of an abdominoplasty are technically permanent, positive outcomes can be diminished by significant weight fluctuations. For this reason, individuals planning substantial weight loss or women considering future pregnancies may be advised to postpone their tummy tuck.
