Are you dealing with that stubborn belly pooch that just won’t seem to go away? Many individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or pregnancy are left with excess skin and stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Tummy tuck in Brandon can help to address these issues for a more confident you. Read on to learn more about the areas a tummy tuck can address, including:

Excess Fat

Liposuction is commonly performed along with a tummy tuck to help flatten problem areas. During this element, fat is loosened and suctioned out using a cannula. This is performed through the tummy tuck incision for a slimmer, more contoured silhouette.

Excess Skin

Excess skin can be annoying and stubborn and is commonly not something that can be eliminated with exercise. During a tummy tuck, the abdominal skin is re-draped and excess skin is trimmed away. The incision for this is hidden between the hipbones and can be covered by underwear or a swimsuit bottom.

Weak Muscles

Over time and during pregnancy, belly muscles can become loose, resulting in a bulging abdomen. During a tummy tuck, lax or separated abdominal muscles are tightened, which can create a tight and toned abdomen. In some cases, this may be the primary element of the procedure.

As you can see, a tummy tuck can address many different problem areas. If you are interested in learning more, contact our Brandon office today to schedule a consultation.
