Tone & Contour Your Midsection With an Abdominoplasty Performed Near Land O’Lakes, FL
If the results of your sincere attempts at diet and exercise have fallen short of your aesthetic goals for your midsection, an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) may help you achieve a more toned abdomen. This type of cosmetic plastic surgery may be a good option for you if you have lost weight but are left with small pockets of fat and loose skin around your stomach. Additionally, if you are a woman who is unhappy with a protruding belly caused by diastasis recti (abdominal muscles that separated during pregnancy and childbirth), an abdominoplasty can address that issue, as well.
Are You a Good Candidate?
It is important to understand that an abdominoplasty is major surgery; as such, it should never be rushed into or viewed as a quick weight-loss method. At the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery near Land O’Lakes, Florida, double board certified plastic and general surgeon Dr. John Roach can meet with you in person and help you determine if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck. After taking some time to get to know you, Dr. Roach will discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals, answer your questions, and explain your options.
It may be possible to flatten your belly without surgery – at least to a certain extent. Therefore, Dr. Roach – who takes a holistic approach to cosmetic surgery that emphasizes whole-body-wellness – may recommend that you consult a dietitian or personal trainer prior to undergoing an abdominoplasty. In general, a tummy tuck may be appropriate for you if you are a healthy, active nonsmoker whose midsection refuses to change shape, even if you’ve maintained healthy eating habits and performed targeted exercises for at least six months to a year.
