Few people are very happy with the excessive skin that is found underneath the abdomen. Under most cases, we would like to see that part of our body trimmed off to have a resulting firmer stomach. One of many of modern medicine's benefits is that we can do just that with the surgery that is coined as the "tummy tuck." This surgery's more official name is the abdominoplasty.

This procedure removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles to make a less protruding abdominal profile. It is strictly cosmetic and should be undertaken only when its benefits will make you personally more confident and a happier person.

The customer who is usually shopping for a procedure like the tummy tuck or one that is similar is usually one who had undergone a significant weight fluctuation due to weight loss or pregnancy. This is because it is not always simply fat that is being removed with this procedure. Many times it is left over skin that is not contracting after significant amounts of fat have been lost. Many times individuals who undergo the procedure complain that after months or even years of effort at trying to lose the excess skin through strict diet regimens and disciplined exercise routines, the excess skin stubbornly remains. This makes many feel that this is their only choice. Therefore be aware that tummy tucks are not a substitute for an adequate diet regimen or a strict exercise program. In addition to pregnancy or large weight gain, the protruding skin and fat underneath the belly button that is removed with the abdominoplasty could come from prior surgery, aging, or hereditary factors.

Therefore let's review some of the general factors that will give you a good idea or not as to whether or not this is worth the cost. Firstly, a significant factor to incorporate into your decision is future weight gain, specifically child birth. If there is another pregnancy within your realm of possibilities, it is highly recommended to wait until after your last pregnancy to undergo the procedure. The positive outcome from abdominoplasties are greatly diminished with significant fluctuations in weight. Secondly, the candidates who are given the green light by doctors are those that are physically healthy and at a stable weight. It is worthy enough to be repeated that this surgery is not simply to be thought of as a weight loss miracle. And yes, physically healthy means that the individual is a non smoker. Lastly, the ideal candidate must have realistic expectations. The great benefit of the tummy tuck is that it will enhance and make more attractive the profile of one's lower stomach, but unfortunately they will not remove ingrained stretch marks and leave behind the inevitable post surgery scar. For this latter, let's delve into how that negative side effect can be ameliorated with the availability of natural scar tissue removal.
