Why Get a Full Gamut Tummy Tuck?
We live in a world where the topic of plastic surgery seems taboo, yet research shows that cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery are common practices nowadays. A person who elects to get plastic surgery should not be viewed as shallow, but rather as someone who has chosen to feel secure, confident and happy with their appearance.
Mothers should not be exempt from this rule; in fact, after the physical sacrifices that come with pregnancy, including rapid weight gain and weight loss, stretch marks, and sagging extra skin, mothers deserve a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures to help restore or improve a woman’s post-pregnancy body. Some body contouring procedures in a mommy makeover include breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck and liposuction.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and diet. Occasionally, these methods alone are unable to meet these goals. Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that is used to remove excess fat and skin, restore weakened or separated abdominal wall muscles, and ultimately results in a smoother and firmer abdomen. This procedure can restore a thinner, more youthful contour to your waistline.
During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the region between the belly button down to within the pubic hair area. Abdominal wall muscles that have been stretched apart, usually from child bearing, are repositioned to achieve a flat, tight abdomen with improvement to the waistline and posture. A horizontal incision, typically placed very low, is well-hidden among clothes and even bathing suits. Liposuction is commonly used as an adjunct and performed through the entire abdomen, hips, and pubic area to suction out the fatty tissue in order to achieve a smooth contour.
