It’s general knowledge that one of the most difficult regions of the body to tone is the abdomen. You can kill yourself by doing crunches or keep to a strict diet but your protruding tummy can linger and become a source of amazing frustration. Whenever a client writes to us complaining about this problem, Better Looks offers them an effective solution: tummy tuck surgery.
An abdominoplasty (another name for tummy tuck) consists in the removal of excess fat and skin from the lower and middle of the abdomen, tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall and making your tummy flatty and firmer. A partial abdominoplasty (a.k.a mini tummy tuck) is a similar surgery which targets only the lower abdomen and therefore less invasive.
This procedure is perfect for female abdomens which have been stretches by pregnancy or weight gain, since usually, the tummy fails to return to its original shape after such circumstances; tissue which fails to react to exercise or diet programs.
A candidate for a tummy tuck surgery needs to be in relatively good shape but suffering from loose abdominal skin and large fat deposits. Those who are planning to lose some weight should wait before performing the surgery; this also includes women who are planning future pregnancies, since the tightened muscles during the procedure can separate during pregnancy. Also, your weight must have been stable for the last 6 months prior to the surgery.
