What a Tummy Tuck Can Achieve

The tummy tuck procedure is very popular, especially among individuals who have experienced pregnancy or significant weight loss. This procedure is very effective and can address many different issues. Read on to learn more about what a tummy tuck can do for you.                                                             

Excess Fat

Stubborn pockets of fat are the biggest culprits when it comes to a large waistline. While liposuction is often used as a standalone procedure, it can also be used along with a tummy tuck to help flatten the abdominal area. Fat is loosened and suctioned out using a cannula. While liposuction requires small incisions that are later closed, the incisions made for a tummy tuck allow the surgeon access.

Excess Skin

Excess skin can be another problem, often manifesting as a sagging pouch that can hide even well-defined abdominal muscles. During a tummy tuck, the abdominal skin is re-draped so that it sits flat, and excess skin is then trimmed away. This results in a smooth, tight abdomen.

Weak Muscles

Over time, the abdominal muscles can become loose. Abdominal muscles can also become separated, giving the entire abdomen a flabby appearance. During a tummy tuck, these lax muscles can be stitched back together to create a tight and toned tummy.

As you can see, the tummy tuck procedure can address many problem areas for a more youthful-looking you. If you are interested in learning more about the tummy tuck procedure in the Aventura, FL area, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sarraga.
