Enjoy a firmer midsection with a tummy tuck procedure in Manhattan

It’s natural for our bodies to change as we age, but for some people, these changes can be drastic. Major life events such as pregnancy and dramatic weight loss can leave extra skin in the abdominal section of your body. The tummy tuck procedure from Dr. Kwan in Manhattan can remove excess tissue and skin from your midsection while also tightening the abdominal muscles.

Why patients should consider a tummy tuck

Our skin is extremely elastic, although over time, the effects of overstretching can become permanent. Individuals who have experienced pregnancy or extreme weight loss are often left with sagging skin in the midsection.

Even with rigorous exercise and a strict diet, the stretched out skin and excess fat often remain. A tummy tuck can remove unwanted skin and fat.

Candidates for tummy tucks

The tummy tuck is very effective at improving the appearance of the midsection, but it is not a weight loss procedure. Candidates for tummy tucks should be in good overall health and close to their desired weight. Drastic weight loss after a tummy tuck can alter the results. If you have a considerable amount of weight to lose, it’s advised to do this prior to a tummy tuck.

The tummy tuck procedure

A tummy tuck will remove excess skin and fat around the waistline and tighten the abdominal muscles. An incision is made just above the pubic area. While there will be scarring, it can be covered by underwear or a bathing suit.

After the procedure, patients should expect some discomfort for the first few days. Full recovery can take weeks or months. Patients should be careful with physical activity during this time and may need to wear compression garments.

If you are ready to increase your confidence with a tummy tuck, call (212) 734 4488 today.
