Recapture a Youthful Waistline With Abdominoplasty
Posted December 09, 2017 in Tummy Tuck
Youth is often associated with quick healing, exuberant energy, a fast metabolism, smooth skin, and slim body contours. As people age, they often wind up envying their younger selves. Instead of living in jealousy and feeling like youth is wasted on the young, you can recapture a slim and youthful waistline through tummy tuck surgery. A tummy tuck can get rid of stubborn belly fat, tone weak stomach muscles, tighten loose skin, and restore an attractive, narrow, and firm waistline.
Firm and Tone Your Abdominal Muscles
Tummy tuck surgery can transform your loose, flabby abdomen and make it firm and toned. During your surgery, Dr. Thompson will address your abdominal muscles that may have been weakened or separated by aging, pregnancy, and/or weight fluctuations. These muscles will be brought closer together to create a tighter abdominal framework. As a result, your abdominal muscle wall will become firmer and flatter, and your abdomen will appear more youthful.
Flatten and Tighten Your Skin
Part of your tummy tuck procedure will be the removal of excess skin. Skin laxity is a common side effect of aging and can lead to rolls or folds of skin in the lower abdominal area. Hanging skin folds can also be left by pregnancy and weight changes. Your tummy tuck will trim away this loose tissue to flatten and tighten your abdomen and give you a more youthful and attractive waistline.
Eliminate Stubborn Belly Fat
Even individuals who have the genetic blessing of a quick metabolism can suffer the consequences of aging and a slowing metabolism. Stubborn fat can accumulate in the abdomen and form rolls, a muffin top, or other unfortunate contours. Your tummy tuck procedure can include liposuction to remove your persistent belly fat and create a more flattering, firm, and defined abdominal contour.
