Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck – Philadelphia
The stomach is one of the most difficult areas of the body to keep toned and trim. Extreme changes in body shape due to weight loss or pregnancy can have a huge impact on your appearance. Even if your body returns to its original shape, sometimes there is excess skin and loosened muscle around the stomach. An abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and can tighten the abdominal muscles.
The abdominoplasty can help you achieve the flatter, more toned and tighter stomach, but it should not be seen as an alternative to a healthy diet and lifestyle. The tummy tuck is also commonly combined with other procedures like the body lift or the mommy makeover.
There are variations in the degree that you can have the stomach tightened. With a partial tuck, the incisions are smaller and the amount of tissue removed is smaller. There are high-lateral tension tucks, which also involve tightening the abdominal muscles. Consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Ryan Hoffman if you have more questions.
