Patient’s who desire improvement in the aesthetic appearance of loose skin on the abdomen may be an excellent candidate for abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck). Diet and exercise alone may not be able to give the desired results to individuals who have undergone massive weight loss or pregnancy. A tummy tuck near Washington DC can help contour the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and is typically done under general anesthesia. A tummy tuck will address the following areas:
1. Getting Rid of Loose Sagging Skin
A tummy tuck is a great option if you have had children, your skin has become stretched, or you have lost a significant amount of weight. This procedure removes the excess fat and skin surrounding your abdomen.
2. Tighten the Abdominal Muscles
After pregnancy or massive weight loss, the muscles of the abdomen may have stretched apart or loosened, this is known as a diastasis. During a tummy tuck, these muscles are tightened and brought back together. This will help improve the appearance of a bulging abdomen and also give a nicer shape and contour to the torso.
3. Correct Any Stretch Marks
If you have stretch marks that are bothering you, a tummy tuck may be the procedure of choice for correcting these issues. You will be able to reduce the appearance of saggy skin on your waist and remove those stretch marks, making the abdomen appear firmer and younger.
4. Improve The Appearance of the Belly Button and Reduce Any Asymmetry
Some of us have a belly button that is larger or less attractive than we would like it to be. If you wish to have a smaller and nicer appearing belly button, tummy tuck surgery can help you achieve this. You can regain your confidence and self-esteem if you are unhappy with how your tummy looks and feel more confident in wearing certain clothes or bikinis.
