Common Reasons to Pursue a Tummy Tuck

tummy tuckEating healthy and exercising is one of the most effective ways to achieve a slimmer body physique. However, this may only work for some. There are instances when you cannot seem to tone your tummy, no matter what you do. In these situations, the highly skilled and dedicated plastic surgeons at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetics in Lone Tree, CO, perform a tummy tuck. So, what is a tummy tuck, and what are some common reasons for having one? Here is what you need to know.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck – medically referred to as abdominoplasty – is a cosmetic surgical procedure where our board-certified plastic surgeons at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetics remove fat cells from your abdomen. The result is a flatter, more toned stomach.

After a tummy tuck, patients often report feeling better about their appearance, more confident, and more comfortable around friends and family. There are several reasons why someone may decide to have this procedure done. Here are just a few.

Common Reasons to Pursue a Tummy Tuck

You Want and Deserve To Look Better

Summer is fast approaching, and you want to look good in a bathing suit – and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It has nothing to do with being vain and everything to do with wanting to look and feel your best.

Loose Skin From Aging or Rapid Weight Loss

Loose skin can naturally occur after a pregnancy, from aging, or from having experienced sudden and drastic weight loss. Regardless of why it happens, a tummy tuck can improve your appearance by removing a large amount of loose skin in and around your stomach.

Hernias and Stretch Marks

Hernias happen when your intestines puncture or break through your abdominal wall. Extensive weight loss, a C-section, or prior surgeries can weaken your stomach muscles and increase your risk of a hernia. Regardless of how your hernia occurred, a tummy tuck can reinforce your abdominal wall, effectively stopping future hernias while helping to make your stomach appear flatter.

After pregnancy, it’s common for some women to have noticeable stretch marks. This is another reason to have a tummy tuck as the process helps to reduce the visibility of these marks.
