After months of exercise and good nutrition, you’ve finally shed those excess pounds and have achieved your weight loss goals. So, why is it that you don’t quite have the body that you were expecting?
A lot of people will discover that losing weight too fast will leave behind substantial amounts of excessive saggy skin. This means that just losing the weight sometimes won’t cut it. Sometimes, losing the weight simply isn’t enough, and more work is required in order to get that look you’ve been working hard for.
Fortunately, this portion of the process is simple thanks to advanced tools and developments in the cosmetic industry. There are many different procedures that people can undergo these days in order to achieve their ideal figure. From facelifts to tummy tucks, there are a number of services that you can try in order to get rid of that excessive skin after extreme weight loss.
Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck, has been used for many years to remove the excess fat and skin located in the abdominal area. This procedure also focuses greatly on restoring weakened or separated stomach muscles to create a smoother and firmer profile.
Many individuals turn to undergoing abdominoplasty after they have exhausted all methods possible in the weight-loss battle. For many, diet and exercise just won’t cut it as there are various factors that can encourage abdominal weight gain such as age, heredity, pregnancy, and extreme fluctuations in weight.
On various occasions, surgeons combine tummy tuck with liposuction to maximize results. The most common areas for liposuction, when combined with abdominoplasty, are the flanks and abdomen. This combination offers patients superior results of a more defined waist-line granting you the boost of confidence needed to feel great in your new body.
