When skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag, it often becomes resistant to tightening with traditional diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is a body contouring procedure that is designed to remove excess skin and loose tissue from the abdomen area for a slimmer, smoother contour.
Who Is A Good Candidate For A Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is best for patients who are healthy and already at a stable weight. Because it is not a fat reduction procedure like liposuction, the tummy tuck in Georgia is intended for those who are close to their goal body size but have struggled with loose, hanging skin around the abdomen. Problems with excess skin can often happen due to factors such as:
- Massive weight loss
Your tummy tuck is usually paired with liposuction in order to reduce stubborn deposits of fat for an improved flattening of your abdomen. Check out our before and after gallery to see some examples of what you can expect.
