Throughout the course of our lives there are a number of ways in which our body can undergo serious changes. Pregnancy, dramatic weight loss, or even simple aging and heredity factors can cause loose and sagging skin around the abdomen, making our own bodies unfamiliar in the mirror. No matter the cause of excess skin around the belly, a tummy tuck at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery can help you achieve the flatter stomach you’ve always wanted!
During a tummy tuck procedure, also known as an abdominoplasty, excess fat is removed using liposuction before the surplus skin around the abdomen and pelvic area is pulled tight, eliminating sag and creating a beautifully taut new contour to your mid-section. In many cases, sagging skin is caused by the weakening of connective tissues that link your skin to your muscles. A tummy tuck corrects this issue, restoring the tissue so your stomach will not only look, but also feel firm and strong.
It’s important to note that a tummy tuck cannot be considered a substitute for fat reduction or a proper diet and exercise program. Tummy tuck is an excellent option for those that have recently lost a lot of weight and are looking for a flatter, more toned abdomen. For further rejuvenation, a Mommy Makeover may also be a strong option. During your consultation our staff will evaluate your body and make a recommendation based on your personal goals.
