10 Aug Signs You Might Be Ready for a Tummy Tuck
Are you exhausted doing sit-up after sit-up? Or how about running in place on the treadmill? If so, and you’re still unhappy with your appearance, it may be time to visit John Park MD Plastic Surgery. Significant weight loss and pregnancies can leave your abdominal section less than desirable with loose stomach muscles and excess skin around the waistline. Diet and exercise do little to nothing for these cosmetic concerns, but a tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, can help.
Here are four signs you might be ready for a tummy tuck performed by Dr. John Park:
You’re Done Losing Weight
A tummy tuck is not a weight loss measure. It’s designed to help you put the finishing touches on your weight loss achievement. Ideal candidates for a tummy tuck are individuals who are near or at their ideal weight – within 10 to 20 pounds of goal weight. This ensures you are healthy enough to withstand surgery.
You’re Done Having Children
Although this isn’t mandatory, it’s ideal. Pregnancy stretches out your abdominal wall weakening muscles and creating the loose skin on the tummy – the exact opposite of what abdominoplasty does. A future pregnancy following a tummy tuck can affect or even reverse your results, and possibly force you to need a second surgery.
You’re Frustrated by Loose Skin and a Protruding Abdomen
When loose skin is the root of the problem, no amount of diet and exercise is going to get rid of it. The same goes for those stubborn fatty deposits that cling to your hips. A combination of a tummy tuck and liposuction can smooth and flatten your tummy region. When your abdominal muscles become stretched and weakened they lose structure and can cause your stomach to bulge out a little. If this is causing you to be self-conscious, a tummy tuck is a solution. Along with eliminating excess skin and fat, a tummy tuck tightens your stomach muscles to give your abdomen structure and tone.
You Want to Regain Your Confidence
There’s no better sign than this. You deserve to feel confident and be happy with your body. When you’re working your hardest to achieve the body contour you desire, and it just isn’t enough, your confidence can take a hit. A tummy tuck can boost your confidence by completing your body transformation and giving you the sleek, toned appearance you deserve.
