No matter how much you diet, there’s this stubborn area in your stomach that just won’t go away. Apparently, diet and exercises aren’t quick fixes to all your problem areas. That’s because when you look closer, what you have there is loose skin, and not excess fat!.
This could actually be caused by several reasons. Some women don’t lose that skin after giving birth, while others were formerly overweight, and when they lost weight, the skin sagged. Whatever the reasons are, your best bet would be a tummy tuck, or what surgeons call an abdominoplasty.
This is considered to be a plastic surgery procedure, and most of the clients seek to rid themselves of that stubborn extra skin in their tummy area. If you’re seriously considering getting a tummy tuck, you need to research on the plastic surgeon you’ll choose.
As with any medical concern, you need to know your doctor’s credentials. This could have a big impact on your health if you’re not careful with the doctor you get.
Because plastic surgery has become so popular, other practitioners may offer their services at a much cheaper price, and that’s because they don’t have the license.
If this doesn’t scare you, look through the net and take a look at the botched procedures done by these so-called experts. Aside from that, you need to talk about the medicines you’ll be taking. Bring up allergies, if any, and see if you have alternatives available for you.
The operation begins with anesthesia. Incisions are made and the skin is stretched. Then, your surgeon closes the wound by sewing. While a tummy tuck sounds easy, it involves more work than you think. Sometimes, when the change is radical, your surgeon may have to remove your belly button and put it on a new area.
This is because when the skin is stretched, it may move down and look out of place. This is considered to be a major procedure, and therefore, recovery time is needed.
You’ll be given a number of medications to help protect your body against pain and also aid in the healing process. Also, educate yourself in the risks involved.
After surgery, you may experience some swelling, tenderness, discoloration, and pain. You need not concern yourself too much because these are normal.
However, if there’s extreme swelling, clotting, nerve damage, disfigurement, and any other worrying effects, you need to call your doctor immediately.
So, if you’ve decided to go for a tummy tuck, you are most likely to be safe when careful research is done. This must be a prerequisite for all those who want to go through a plastic surgery. All procedures do carry risks, and no matter how irrelevant some of these are, you still need to know what to expect.
Mull over the possibilities and take your time when deciding. One you’ve decided, make sure to maintain the required lifestyle. Many who have undergone such surgery have finally felt comfortable with their bodies, and that’s because they were smart about it.
