Abdominoplasty is the procedure which flattens your abdomen by removing the extra fat and tightening the muscles on the abdominal wall. The surgical procedure is called a tummy tuck.
The procedure is considered a major surgery and it is good if you educate yourself on how you can analyze your own situation before you come up with the decision of getting a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck has to be the last resort for people who may have exhausted other measures, the procedure should not be used as an alternative to weight loss.
The right candidate to get abdominoplasty
Tummy tuck can be done on women and men as far as they are in good health and they have stable weight. It is good also for candidates who do not smoke.
The tummy tuck is different from liposuction. The cosmetic surgery can be used for removing fat deposits but the surgeon can choose to do liposuction in combination as a part of the tummy tuck procedure. Women who suffer from stretched skin and muscle because of pregnancy will find that this procedure is more useful when it comes to tightening up the muscle and reducing the skin. The tummy tuck is an alternative for those who had been overweight and after losing weight, they continue to suffer from loose skin and fat deposits at the abdominal area.
