Contouring the Abdomen During a Tummy Tuck Offers the Best Results

If you’re looking to transform the look of your abdominal area, you might be considering a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck – formally known as an abdominoplasty – can remove excess skin from the stomach area and tighten surrounding muscles, but this alone can cause this area to lose its definition.

A woman’s figure is comprised of the body’s contour, and most tummy tucks are flat and void of any defining shape. That’s why many plastic surgeons are taking the tummy tuck a step further and adding a bit of contouring for a more athletic shape.

The Tummy Tuck Procedure

Contrary to popular belief, a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure. In fact, it’s a procedure often done after losing a lot of weight, such as after giving birth. A tummy tuck removes loose skin and tightens muscles to make the stomach look flatter.

Many women lose muscle strength in the abdomen, especially after pregnancy. They may also notice fat pockets that won’t go away no matter how well they eat or how often they exercise. A tummy tuck brings those muscles back into position.

Adding the Body Contouring

After a tummy tuck, some plastic surgeons choose to add a bit of contour to the abdominal area. That’s because traditional tummy tuck leaves the stomach area plain and flat. Contouring, along with lipo sculpting, gives women a defined look that they find very attractive. This contouring not only boosts self-confidence but also allows women to wear clothes they could never wear before – like bikinis.
