Major life events, including pregnancy and significant weight loss, have an impact on your body – and sometimes they leave you with body issues that you didn’t have to deal with before. For some, issues with loose or sagging skin just can’t be corrected by making good eating choices and taking part in healthy physical activity. If you have a protruding abdomen that you’ve experienced as an effect of weight loss, pregnancy, or aging, you can benefit from tummy tuck surgery in Lubbock, TX from the restorative and cosmetic plastic surgery office of Eric Minns, MD, PA.

What Does a Tummy Tuck Do?

Tummy tuck plastic surgery is intended to remove drooping and excess skin from the abdominal area, which has persisted, despite good diet choices and routine exercise. A tummy tuck also corrects the loosening and separating of muscles in the abdomen that occur during a pregnancy, which contribute to a less-than-toned appearance.

What to Consider about Getting a Tummy Tuck

If you’re looking to tone muscles and tighten excess skin, a tummy tuck can help. It’s important to keep these tips in mind when looking into getting tummy tuck surgery in Lubbock, TX:

• Results are best supported by healthy eating choices and physical activity – Your tummy tuck procedure will help you achieve a toned and tightened appearance, but can be negatively affected by weight yo-yoing. Tummy tuck patients can continue to keep their figure looking toned and slim after treatment by making the right lifestyle choices.

• A tummy tuck will not accomplish what a liposuction can – While your tummy tuck can remove loose skin and some fat, it is not an ideal choices for removing larger deposits of fat around the abdomen.

• Ideal candidates are generally in good shape – Those who will see optimal results with a tummy tuck are those who are healthy, but cannot get rid of extra skin the abdomen with good eating choices and exercise. Those who go through significant weight fluctuations, or who are thinking of having more children are not ideal for tummy tuck surgery, as either of these scenarios re-loosen abdominal muscles or create more loose skin that would require re-treatment.

Tummy tuck treatment is also be a part of comprehensive plastic surgery treatment for a total mommy makeover, coupled with a breast lift and augmentation.
