If you recently lost weight or had a baby, then you have a lot to celebrate. Consistent exercise and eating right are two things that can give you great results that are worth showing off. But, pregnancy and drastic weight loss can also leave you sometimes with a less than perfect body— especially because of loose, sagging skin. Luckily, here at Dr. Gregory Wiener’s office, we have a surgical procedure that can not only help tighten loose skin around the abdomen, but that can get rid of excess fat as well.
What’s a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a popular surgical procedure that is designed to lift and tighten the skin around the abdomen to give you that more youthful look you’ve been wanting. In addition to getting a tummy tuck, we may recommend that patients also get liposuction done at the same time. This combination of procedures is called a lipo-abdominoplasty and is popular because it does two things in one surgery— leaving you with only recovery time overall.
What Can a Tummy Tuck Treat?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Gregory Wiener, he will be able to help determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for a tummy tuck. Patients who are ideal for this type of surgical procedure typically:
- Don’t Smoke
- Are In Good Overall Health
- Have Loose Abdominal Skin
- Have Lower Abdominal Fatty Deposits
- Want to Restore Abdominal Muscles
If you have recently lost weight but are unhappy with your results because of stubborn fat that won’t go away and loose skin around your abdomen, then you may be the perfect candidate for a lipo-abdominoplasty.
