A Tummy Tuck Can Improve the Shape and Appearance of Your Abdomen

A flat stomach with the gentle contours of the underlying muscle is something that many people find appealing. In many cases, diet, exercise and the other aspects of successful weight loss might not be enough to fully achieve this goal. There are many factors that might be involved. This inspires many people to contact their cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye, to ask about a tummy tuck.

Also known as an abdominoplasty, this is a form of cosmetic surgery designed to remove excess fat and skin and take into account other potential issues. In many cases, previous weight can cause muscle separation or muscle weakness.

In a case like this, the tummy tuck will also evaluate the muscle structure and shape. If this is a factor, your cosmetic surgeon will also help you understand your options.

It’s important to note that a tummy tuck is not an effective method for weight loss. It is not designed to remove excess fat and it cannot improve health complications resulting from obesity. A tummy tuck is also not an effective treatment for stretch marks resulting from weight gain or pregnancy.

If you are contemplating a future pregnancy, you might want to postpone a tummy tuck until you are done having children.

If you have recently lost a significant amount of weight but you’d still like to improve the appearance of your abdominal skin, you should call Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee at 866.234.0470 to ask about a tummy tuck in Clarksville, Tennessee.
