Spring is fast approaching, and it’s almost time to get your swimsuit out and prepare yourself for all of the summer fun. You will want to look your best and feel great as you head to the beaches and pools. Now is a good time to consider plastic surgery, because you will have time to recover just in time for your summer fun. Consider having a tummy tuck to help you prepare for summer. You can expect the following results:

  • a flatter midsection
  • a firmer midsection
  • tight abdominal muscles

A tummy tuck will remove the excess skin and fat while restoring weak muscles in your abdominal area. Once the procedure is completed, you can expect a much firmer abdominal profile as wear your swimsuit with pride. The winter months are a good time to get your tummy tuck because you can count on being fully recovered by summer.

Are You a Good Candidate?

If you are in generally good health, you are likely a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Often a person who has already lost a substantial amount of weight and would like to eliminate the excess skin from their stomach area will benefit from this procedure. Many ladies who have had children and may be carrying some extra weight around their waist will be good candidates for this procedure. Usually, a good candidate will have excess skin and fat within their stomach area and would like it flattened and smooth. This procedure will remove unwanted fat and excess skin. A tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure. This procedure is performed by trained medical professionals on an outpatient basis. If you answered “yes” to the above criteria, you might be an ideal candidate for the tummy tuck procedure.

About the Procedure

The tummy tuck procedure is completed by a qualified plastic surgeon. An incision is made in the lower area of the abdomen. You will not need to stay in the hospital, because this is a safe outpatient procedure. The abdominal muscles are sewn together in the midline, resulting in a tighter and more toned appearance. The fat and skin will be elevated and tightened. The plastic surgeon will remove any excess fat and skin from the lower part of your abdominal area. Any skin that is loose and soft and hangs down will be removed and tightened. The tissues and skin will be sutured back together, and you can expect a flatter and much firmer abdomen after your tummy tuck is completed.
