What is a Tummy Tuck?
Tummy Tucks seek to rectify flab in the abdomen. Flabby abdomens can be caused by the accumulation of fat, but they can also be a result of the lack of elasticity in the skin, excess skin and the stretching of the abdominal fascia and muscles that go from the ribs to the pubic bone. If your abdominal fascia is stretched during pregnancy or other significant changes in weight, this can cause your abdomen to protrude.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Tummy Tucks?
A tummy tuck could be right for you if you have excess skin accumulating around your belly button or have a weak lower abdominal wall. You may also benefit from it if liposuction did not adequately improve the appearance of your abdomen or you have previously had a C-section and have gotten retracted scarring as a result.
What are the Benefits of Tummy Tucks?
Thigh lift surgery can completely reshape the thighs, eliminating the unattractive fat deposits and sagging skin that can make people unhappy with their appearance. In addition to helping patients feel better about themselves, a thigh lift often allows people to fit into body-conscious clothes more easily.
