Everyone knows that having a healthy diet and exercising daily can give you a longer lifespan and a more active lifestyle as you get older. But no matter how hard you work out, there are simply no exercises you can do that will get rid of saggy, excess belly skin. Sure, you can do ab workouts and cut out sweet treats, and you will see some differences in your belly. But all your effort won’t make that excess skin disappear. If this sounds like your experience, there’s a good chance that you would benefit from an abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck.
Who Benefits From a Tummy Tuck?
Moms after pregnancy
After having kids, the abdominal muscles will shrink back into place, but stretched skin almost never goes back to where it was before pregnancy. A lot of moms also see stretch marks appear that won’t disappear even years after giving birth. A tummy tuck can tighten the skin around the abdomen and shape the muscles to give the tummy a flatter, more attractive look.
People who have undergone significant weight loss
You should be proud of your body and the changes you’ve made in your lifestyle. Excess skin leftover from pounds recently lost can dampen your self-image and make you feel like all that hard work still didn’t give you the body you desired. A tummy tuck lifts all the skin up to the rib cage and then it is cut and re-draped to accentuate the new, beautiful body you have.
Those Who Can’t Get Rid of that Middle Age Bulge
With middle age comes a slower metabolism, and your body is no longer able to get rid of excess fat like it used to. A tummy tuck combined with liposuction can get rid of that bulge for good and give you a healthy, more youthful appearance.
