20 Aug Why You Deserve a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is a popular part of a mommy makeover, but it can also be a standalone procedure—and you certainly don’t need to be a mommy (or even a woman!) to benefit from the life-changing results this popular procedure can bring. At John Park MD Plastic Surgery, tummy tucks are one of the most popular procedures, and with good reason. Tummy tucks involve the removal of excess belly skin, the tightening of the abdominal muscles, and often liposuction to banish the last signs of stubborn fat that tend to stick around the tummy area.
However, tummy tucks are not a fat loss procedure. They are recommended for adults who are at or near their goal weight but struggle with sagging skin. If you’re not sure if a tummy tuck is right for you, a custom consultation with Dr. John Park can help you explore the benefits of this incredible surgery and decide if it’s the correct approach for you. Here are just a few reasons why you might not just be a great candidate for a tummy tuck, but why you truly deserve it:
Two reasons why a tummy tuck is right for you
- You lost the weight! Losing weight is hard work, whether you do it the old-fashioned way with diet and exercise or opt for a little extra boost with weight-loss surgery. However, what a lot of people don’t tell you about losing weight is that too often, the skin remains. Skin stretches to accommodate the extra weight people have, but sometimes after losing the weight quickly the skin has a tough time snapping back and this is where a tummy tuck can have wonderful results. You’ve already achieved a huge goal with your weight loss. A tummy tuck is a well-deserved reward.
- You’re part of the miracle of childbirth. If you’re a woman who is finished having biological children, you deserve to reward yourself. Childbirth requires the belly skin to stretch at an accelerated rate, and this can lead to skin that doesn’t quite snap back as well as you’d like. A tummy tuck not only gives you a flat tummy, but it even helps strengthen ab muscles that may have been weakened or torn during pregnancy.
Everyone has different amounts of collagen and elastin in their skin. These two proteins are in charge of helping skin stay taut, smooth, and youthful. However, everyone has different amounts in their bodies and their production is determined by genetics and age. However, a tummy tuck can step in and make all the difference regardless of your unique collagen and elastin levels.
