Reasons For Choosing To Have A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

There are a number of reasons for choosing  to have a Tummy Tuck. These include

  • To remove loose abdominal skin after losing weight
  • To remove excess skin and fat without any weight loss
  • To improve your muscle and skin tone after pregnancy
  • To remove large fat deposits in the abdominal area
  • To improve skin elasticity if you are an older patient

As well as the potential self conscious issues associated with large abdominal fat deposits or loose abdominal skin, there are also a number of health risks associated with these conditions including back and posture difficulties. History has also proven that these areas often don’t respond well to diet and exercise.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – Making The Best Choices For You.

To make the best choices for you and give you the results you want to achieve, it is important to have the right information and to be guided through the process by an experienced Cosmetic Surgeon. The most important decision to make regarding Tummy Tuck Cosmetic Surgery is whether Liposculpture / Liposuction could be a suitable alternative. Liposculpture / Liposuction is a less invasive procedure with minimal scarring. Liposuction is generally more suitable to younger patients with good skin elasticity.

Dr Goldman will thoroughly go through this important choice with you. As a guideline here though, if large fat deposits are involved and there is bulging of the abdominal muscles or excess skin and fat hanging over the pubic region, it is most likely that you will require Tummy Tuck Cosmetic Surgery. If the excessive skin and fat is focused more directly below the navel, then a smaller  operation termed “Mini-Tuck” Cosmetic Surgery is potentially a better choice.

During a professional consultation with your Cosmetic Surgeon Dr Goldman, he will guide you through each step and provide you with extensive reading material to take home which will assist you in the decision making process.
