Losing a lot of weight either due to personal weight loss goals or after a pregnancy is a real victory. Whether you’ve been putting extra hours in at the gym or you have been following a strict diet. You definitely deserve a reward for reaching your goals. If, however, you still feel too self-conscious to get into a swim suit because you have too much excess skin around your middle, then Dr. Stanley Foster can help.
What is A Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is designed specifically for patients like you who are at their goal weight (or almost to their goal weight) but have some excess skin they’d like to get rid of. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Foster will make incisions above the pubic bone so that they can be concealed with underwear or a swimsuit. After the incisions have been made, he will then remove excess skin and then lift and tighten the remaining skin. The muscles are also tightened so your abdomen is flat.
Another thing to know about tummy ticks is that the procedure can be performed in conjunction with liposuction to help you get rid of excess fat as well as excess skin. So, if you still have a little bit of stubborn fat that won’t go away no matter how many sit-ups you do, we can talk about this combination during your consultation. Dr. Foster performs the liposuction in his office after your abdominoplasty wounds have healed. It is much safer to do the liposuction at a later time.
Why a Tummy Tuck?
You have worked hard to get where you are now and you shouldn’t have to feel self-conscious about your body because of excess skin. Our goal after surgery is for you to feel so confident and happy in the skin that you are in, that you head to the beach this summer in a swimsuit without a care in the world.
Is a Tummy Tuck Right For Me?
During your initial consultation at our office, we will do a physical examination, ask you some questions, answer any questions you may have, and look at your medical history. From there we will better be able to determine whether or not this procedure is the right fit for you.
