An abdominoplasty is the removal of skin and fat from the lower abdomen and usually is accompanied by tightening of the abdominal wall muscles. It literally is tucking away the excess skin and fat from pregnancies or after massive weight loss. Therefore, do not have a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty ‘till you have completed child bearing. The excess skin and fat are removed permanently, and it restores your shape to a more youthful appearance.
An abdominoplasty will help flatten the stomach after you have tried diet, exercise and weight loss but still cannot achieve the appearance you want. Or it could help if you have reached a point where all this work seems overwhelming and you need a permanent solution. Liposuction can remove the fat but does very little to remove all that excess skin.
Abdominoplasty is a permanent solution to problems encountered by your genetic predisposition to hold excess fat in your mid-section. Life stresses, thyroid disease, slowing metabolism of aging and menopause can play havoc on your shape. Diligent control of diet and exercise can be overwhelmed by these natural phenomena that are out of your control. An abdominoplasty consultation with Dr. Saira Saini at Carolina Plastic Surgery may be the answer for your current situation.
Besides removing the skin and fat, an abdominoplasty with Dr. Saini is accompanied by tightening of the abdominal wall muscles. The tightening of the abdominal wall muscles restores the tone to your abdominal wall. The abdominal muscle tone is lost by excessive stretching of these muscles during pregnancy or during massive weight gain.
The tightening of these muscles will help create an internal corset and will hold the shape of an abdomen and give you back your smaller waistline. This is an important feature of an abdominoplasty, and Dr. Saira Saini will discuss her technique with you in detail. It is important to realize that without this important step you will not have a trimmer, flatter and firmer abdomen. If you need liposuction to define your shape, then it can be done in conjunction with your abdominoplasty and Dr. Saini will let you know if this is necessary with your abdominoplasty.
Dr. Saini will discuss the inches you will lose with this procedure and the fact that you will go down several sizes in your clothing. Most patients loose additional weight after the surgery because they are inspired to take better care of their diet and exercise routines following phenomenal improvements in their appearance.
