Tummy tuck surgery creates firm and toned abdominal contours. Men and women often find that weight loss, pregnancy, and aging lead to an excess accumulation of skin that obscures the attractive contours of the abdomen. Tummy tuck surgery highlights the abdomen by eliminating excess skin and reducing unwanted fat. TriBeCa Plastic Surgery will customize your tummy tuck so you achieve the best, most attractive abdominal results possible.
What Can Tummy Tuck Surgery Achieve?
Smoother Abdominal Contour
Excess skin accumulation is a common side effect of weight loss, aging, and pregnancy. Over time, tissues become lax, begin to sag, and create an undefined and wrinkled abdominal appearance. Patients with larger folds of skin caused by extreme weight loss often experience painful irritation due to chafing. Targeting these unsightly folds of skin will restore a smoother abdominal contour.
Lax abdominal muscles can lead to the appearance of a stomach pooch. A distended abdomen is common following pregnancy and as we age. Men and women can struggle to restore definition and tone to their abdomen through diet and exercise because the muscles have been stretched. A tummy tuck tightens loose abdominal muscles through a special suturing technique to restore tone to the stomach area.
Slimmer Abdominal Appearance
Unwanted fat can lead to a flabby abdominal appearance. Fat can affect how well clothing fits, mask abdominal definition, and obscure the curves of your body. Liposuction can be combined with any tummy tuck procedure to eliminate fat and sculpt the abdomen for a slimmer appearance.
Elimination of Stretch Marks on the Lower Abdomen
Stretch marks develop due to rapid or prolonged stretching of the skin. It is a common side effect of weight loss, pregnancy, and aging. While a tummy tuck cannot treat 100 percent of your stretch marks, you will gain a noticeable improvement in your skin appearance in the abdominal area. Stretch marks that are present on the removed skin will be eliminated. Remaining stretch marks may be improved during the skin draping process.
