Sagging skin can easily make a person feel uncomfortable about the look of their belly. Unfortunately, even with regular exercise and a healthy diet, excess skin will not go away on its own. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, with Dr. Avron can help finally flatten and tighten the look of your abdomen when your healthy lifestyle is not enough.
Why You May Consider a Tummy Tuck
The tummy tuck procedure is intended for those who are already at a stable weight and are currently living a healthy lifestyle, but are unable to tighten skin that has become loose or saggy due to life factors such as:
- Changes in weight
If your skin is stretched for long periods of time, it can quickly lose elasticity. Think of it as if you were to lend your favorite sweater to a friend or spouse who is larger than you. It will likely come back to you fitting a bit looser and appearing stretched or saggy. The same thing happens to your skin when your body undergoes a dramatic change in size — due to pregnancy or weight gain — and then returns to its normal shape. While the rest of your body reverts to its smaller size, unfortunately, your skin does not.
People often mistake that sagging skin can be fixed with a healthy diet and exercise; however, a surgical procedure, such as the tummy tuck, is usually the only way to rid the excess skin.
A Brief Walkthrough of Your Tummy Tuck Surgery
Florida top plastic surgeon Dr. Avron is skilled in body contouring. When you visit us for your tummy tuck consultation, he will first analyze your situation to ensure that a tummy tuck is, in fact, the best procedure for you. People sometimes seek a tummy tuck when, what they actually need, is liposuction. After discussing your goal appearance, Stuart plastic surgeon Dr. Avron will then determine if you will be best suited for a full or mini abdominoplasty. If you are also looking to address stubborn deposits of fat in the area, Dr. Avron can safely perform liposuction surgery in Flordia along with your tummy tuck surgery.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure in Florida that is designed to remove excess skin and tissue while strengthening and tightening the abdominal wall. In order to minimize the visibility of external scarring, Dr. Avron will carefully make a horizontal incision hidden below the underwear line.
Once your surgery is complete, you may experience a bit of swelling and discomfort, but keep your head up! A recovery period is a necessary part of all surgical procedures. Over time, you will begin to feel like yourself again as your scar continues to flatten out and lighten. When fully healed, your new belly will be flatter, firmer, and fantastic.
