Losing a significant amount of weight is difficult enough without the added worry of access skin or fat deposits on your abdomen. Altering the shape of fat deposits on your abdomen can often be a significant challenge when trying to accomplish this alone. While you might have lost a healthy amount of weight, you still might want to improve the overall look of your abdomen. In a situation like this, you might want to talk to Dr. Trenton C. Jones, M.D. about a tummy tuck in Orem, Salt Lake County, and Utah County, Utah.
A tummy tuck is also known as abdominoplasty. This is a procedure designed to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen. In a lot of cases, it can also help to restore atrophied or separated abdominal muscles, giving you a smoother and firmer abdominal look.
It’s important to keep in mind that a tummy tuck is not designed to be a simple replacement for diet and exercise. Even after you are completely healed, you will need to maintain a consistent weight to keep from developing other cosmetic issues.
If you are planning a pregnancy in the future, you may want to delay the tummy tuck until after childbirth.
