So you’ve worked really hard, lost all that weight and now you want to show off your true weight loss achievements… but that banging body you’ve worked so hard on is hidden under all this extra skin! Stop hiding under those baggy clothes and get your crop tops ready, a Tummy Tuck might be just what you’re looking for.
Tummy Tucks, also known as abdominoplasty procedures, are designed to help women feel and look amazing and confident in the skin they’re in. This procedure at Cosmetic1 can add the finishing touches you desire on your body by removing fat deposits and excess skin that won’t go away with diet routines and common exercise.
When is the perfect time for a Tummy Tuck?
This reconstructive surgery is generally conducted to remove fat and extra loose skin from the abdomen after massive weight loss, or tighten muscles that have become loose or split following pregnancy.
So Cosmetic1 recommend going under the big cut once after you’ve finished planning on having children or pursuing weight loss regimes. Excess skin is a common side effect of weight-loss or giving birth, and it can be very difficult, and in some cases impossible for your skin to bounce back to normal without surgical procedures.
A protruding abdomen can either be genetic or just how people are built. It is very difficult to target those areas where the body stores the most fat with exercises, meaning sometimes abdominoplasty is the only way to fix weight issues concentrated in these parts of the body.
What is the difference between a Cosmetic1 Mini and Full Tummy Tuck?
Both a Mini and Full Tummy Tuck require the removal of skin and fat, and the placement of a scar as low as possible to be out of the way. A Full Tummy Tuck is when the belly button is repositioned to the correct position, which is around the waist line. Whereas, a Mini Tummy Tuck does not involve moving the belly button.
Cosmetic1 surgeon Dr David Topchian talks about the differences in this video.
Thus, there are many aesthetically beneficial reasons why women undergo a Tummy Tuck procedure, and best results can be seen when the client has a protruding abdomen, flaccid skin or fatty tissue build-up.
