Almost everyone who undergoes a significant, dramatic weight loss is going to have some amount of excess, sagging skin left over. This concern is also common in women who have had multiple pregnancies. It can be an emotionally traumatizing thing to deal with and can destroy confidence, as well as hinder fashion choices. People with these concerns may be good candidates for abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, in The Woodlands, TX, with Dr. Sugene Kim.
How can it help?
People who are in good health and have maintained a stable, healthy weight for at least 6 month choose tummy tuck surgery to:
- Reduce excess skin around the abdomen
- Flatten a belly bulge that won’t go away with consistent exercise
- Enhance the contours of the waist
There are several types of tummy tuck procedures depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. One thing to keep in mind when considering this procedure is that the scar from this surgery will be permanent, but most plastic surgeons work hard to ensure that it will be easily hidden by most undergarments or swimwear.
