Individuals who experience pregnancy and significant weight fluctuations can be left with excess skin or weakened abdominal muscles, which can easily be corrected by a tummy tuck procedure in Brandon. Read on to learn more about what this procedure can and can’t do.

Tummy tuck can create a flat abdomen

The tummy tuck procedure can remove excess stubborn fat deposits, and create a toned, contoured abdomen. It can also repair weakened or separated abdominal muscles for a flatter, tighter tummy. This can result in a confidence boost and a jump-start to a healthier lifestyle.

Tummy tuck can remove excess skin

Excess skin can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. A tummy tuck can remove excess skin that is saggy and impossible to get rid of with exercise alone. This can result in a more comfortable and confident you.

Tummy tuck can’t prevent future weight gain

While a tummy tuck can be a great way for individuals to feel like they’ve got their body back, it should only be performed on those who are at a stable weight. This is because future weight gain can negatively impact results. Although excess fat is removed, this does not prevent weight gain in the future. This is why it is so important to live a healthy, active lifestyle to maintain results.

Tummy tuck can’t remove stretch marks

Stretch marks are most common on the abdomen, hips, and thighs. However, a tummy tuck cannot remove these marks. If you are unhappy with your stretch marks, speak with your plastic surgeon about other possible treatment options.
