In today’s society there is a strong desire to both look good, and feel good, though you will find that looking good and feeling good are often at odds with one another. That being the case, it becomes very important for you to not only watch your weight, but also ensure that you are working out, eating right, and of course, ensuring that you set limits for yourself.
Getting a fresh start however is always important, and this is why you might want to consider getting a tummy tuck in Miami. Something that should be noted about a tummy tuck in Miami FL is that it is typically considered an unnecessary plastic surgery(abdominoplasty) and will therefore not be covered by the insurance companies. This, however, is something that we will get to a bit later. To start with, let’s discuss precisely what a tummy tuck is and how it can benefit you.
What is a Tummy Tuck in Miami?
The tummy tuck is often touted as a solution to obesity, though to be honest, there are certain responsibilities that you will need to put upon yourself, rather than a quick fix surgery. These will include eating right, exercising, and saying no to the things that can contribute to an unhealthy lifestyle. As you can see, there is much more to the process than simply walking into the doctor’s office and undergoing surgery! You must commit to a brand new way of life, and you must be ready to accept the consequences. Still, if you do manage to start your life anew after surgery, you will find that it is not only worthwhile, but that your body feels much more refreshed and healthy. That, in itself, is well worth the cost. That being said, you may very well be a good candidate to undergo a tummy tuck Miami.
The idea of a tummy tuck is to lose layers of fat and flab around the abdominal area. This will help to ensure that you look better in certain articles of clothing, and will help to reduce the number of ‘concealing’ clothes that you would typically need to wear. There are some qualifications that an individual will need to address before reporting for surgery, and these include, first of all, ensuring that you are within 30% of your ideal body weight. As we said before, this is not a quick fix or a weight loss surgery, you must put in a considerable amount of work in order for the surgery to be a true success.
In addition to that, you need to be sure that your weight(within 30%) has been stable for a period of six months or more to ensure that you will not backslide. Good skin tone and elasticity are also a must, along with emotional stability. There are risks to undergoing this type of surgery, but that doesn’t mean you should put it off entirely. The risks are relatively small compared to the great benefits that you will gain from undergoing this surgery and certainly must be considered.
So what does this procedure consist of? How much discomfort can you actually expect? This is actually a minor surgery, but let’s go over some of the more minute details of the tummy tuck in Miami FL so that you will be fully prepared.
First of all, you will be placed under a local or general anesthesia depending on the doctor’s discretion. The surgery itself will last from one to three hours, and after the fact you will more than likely need to remain on pain medication for three to eight days. The pain will subside, though you will have to deal with numbness for up to six months. The good news however is that you can usually return to work in ten days or less assuming you have a desk job. What about the end result however? What can you expect?
We strive to ensure that the aesthetics you seek are preserved throughout the surgery and are evident long after the surgery is complete. Once the healing process is fully completed, you will typically have a scar on the side, though not immediately visible from the front. In most cases this scar does not heal entirely, but concealing clothes can make it look more natural.
Reasons for Surgery
There is a common, yet flawed philosophy which states: “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”. The very statement actually serves to stagnate progress and leave us in a state of perpetual ‘settling’, so to speak. The question you must ask yourself however, is if you are comfortable with settling for what you have. Your body, which, is the only one you will have for this lifetime, occasionally requires maintenance. The bottom line is that you need to be comfortable in your own body, and there are certain things you may need to do in order to achieve that level of comfort. A tummy tuck in Miami will help you to not only reclaim your body, but also to help you regain a level of self confidence that you might have lost when you began to gain weight, or when you realized that you needed help.
