A flat, firm tummy is a sign of youthful attractiveness. Factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, aging, and genetics eliminate or prevent a flat and firm waistline for many adults. Often, this causes self-confidence and self-image issues along with discouragement because exercise and dieting are often futile in the attempt to reclaim a youthful figure. Abdominoplasty can restore a flat, firm tummy by addressing issues such as loose skin, weak muscles, and localized fat so that you can look and feel more youthful and confident.
Excess, loose skin in the abdominal area may be caused by weight loss, pregnancy, aging, or a combination of these factors. Lost skin elasticity cannot typically be restored through exercise. Additionally, stretch marks can mar the appearance of your abdomen. Both stretch marks and loose abdominal skin can limit your clothing options and make you feel uncomfortable with your appearance. Tummy tuck surgery can trim away loose skin and eliminate stretch marks from the lower abdomen so that the abdomen appears more youthful, attractive, and smooth.
Pregnancy and weight loss are the primary causes of loose abdominal muscles and diastasis recti. Diastasis recti is when the muscles of the stomach wall become separated, causing the abdomen to protrude. The resulting stomach pooch may cause you to look pregnant or overweight simply after eating a meal. Tummy tuck surgery tightens the muscular structure so that the abdomen no longer protrudes and the waist is firm and toned.
Despite healthy dieting, regular cardiovascular exercise, and fat-burning routines, localized fat may persist in your lower belly. Even if you are incredibly fit everywhere else, stubborn abdominal fat can make you look and feel overweight. The removal of unwanted fat from the abdomen creates a youthful and narrow waistline that can highlight your figure in an attractive way.
