You’ve lost that extra weight – congratulations! However, nobody can tell! Well relax, Dr. Adam Basner has a solution to help you lose that flabby tummy skin and get you ready for a summer on the beach!
An Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, takes the disfigured shape of our lower stomach and reshapes it by taking away the abundance of fat and skin that have accumulated in the lower of your tummy. As that excess fat and skin is removed, the middle lower and middle abdomen is tightened up and the position of your naval is restored.
Women are prone to have this excess fat and skin after pregnancy as well as anyone who has had gastric bypass surgery. People who have a lot of weight to lose, this procedure is not recommended as it will be difficult notice the results. Only a small amount of fat and excess skin can be removed at one time. You have to keep in mind as well that everyone has different results. No two people are going to have identical problems and get identical results.
There are two categories of a Tummy Tuck procedure. A complete abdominoplasty, the standard tummy tuck procedure, includes both the lower and middle abdominal muscles. A partial abdominoplasty, a mini tummy tuck, only includes the lower abdominal muscles.
The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland suggests that you may want to consider having an abdominoplasty if any of the following instances describe you.
After pregnancy, many women who gained and lost weight are left with flabby skin in the tummy area. Dr. Basner will remove the excess skin, returning your tummy as close to pre-pregnancy as possible. You need to be certain that you are through having children first.
You may have struggled with weight most of your life and succeeded in loosing that extra weight, having an abdominoplasty will remove the skin that remains so that, giving you more reason to show off your new figure.
Perhaps you have had some other type of surgery that developed excess skin in the tummy area. Dr. Basner may recommend liposuction, or if that may not be enough, a tummy tuck may be recommended.
As we age, the collagen in our skin disappears. Collagen is what keeps our skin flat, tight and toned. If your skin is starting to sag as you get older, an abdominoplasty could be the opportunity you’re looking for to get your body back in shape and keep a younger look!
If any of the above instances describe you, you don’t have to live with that saggy, excess skin and fatty tissue any more. Make your appointment today at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland to discuss this area of your body with Dr. Basner. An abdominoplasty just may be the answer for you.
