There are many reasons why unwanted fat and stretched skin can plague our midsections, including significant weight loss, pregnancy, genetics, and age. Because of these things, you may find yourself struggling with belly flab that seems impossible to eliminate. Even the strictest diet or most disciplined fitness program may not be enough to achieve the results you desire.
That’s where a tummy tuck comes in. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat while tightening lax muscles. It’s an effective way to enjoy a firmer and flatter waistline.
Here are some things you should know about getting a tummy tuck in Costa Mesa, California:
- Tummy tuck surgery isn’t for weight loss. A tummy tuck won’t make you drop a significant amount of weight — and it’s not meant to do so. It belongs to a category of plastic surgery known as body contouring.
Body contouring procedures offer the best outcomes when patients are at or near their target weight. Think of a tummy tuck as the perfect complement to your healthy lifestyle.
- There are different types of tummy tucks. You may benefit from a full tummy tuck or a less-invasive mini tummy tuck. It depends on your needs and goals. A full tummy tuck addresses the upper and lower abdomen, while a mini one only focuses on the upper abdomen.
- The benefits are more than cosmetic. Indeed, you’ll probably feel more confident in your appearance after a tummy tuck. However, the procedure can also offer some medical benefits. For example, it can have a big impact on your core stability.
Studies have suggested that a tummy tuck can also help with issues such as urinary incontinence and back pain. For these reasons, patients with diastasis recti can expect to enjoy significant benefits from surgery.
