There are many reasons why people turn to a tummy tuck for help, and while some of the benefits will be explored below, if you are interested in the procedure the best place to turn to for more information and to determine if a tummy tuck is right for you with local experts of Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center with Dr. Amarpaul Sidhu in Glendora, CA.
Otherwise known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is how the procedure is most well known because of what it involves. During the treatment, the surgeon removes excess fat and skin from around your stomach, the so-called belly overhang, to leave you with a flatter and toned midsection.
It can help you get rid of that hard-to-deal-with fat, but because there is a limit to how much excess fat can be removed, a tummy tuck should not be considered as strictly a weight loss method, nor as a replacement or substitute for diet and exercise.
But a tummy tuck does play a very important role if you are losing weight or have lost significant weight as it can remove the resulting excess skin. Many mothers often choose a tummy tuck soon after having given birth as well.
Improving the way you look and the way you feel about yourself are in themselves important goals that a tummy tuck can help you reach. But there are other benefits to the procedure, such as helping alleviate back pain and improving your posture. After giving birth or after losing a significant amount of weight many patients complain about those specific problems because of weakened stomach muscles. A tummy tuck can help tighten these muscles, and the removal of excess fat often translates into improved abdominal support, which can improve back pain and posture-related issues.
