After events such as significant weight loss and pregnancy, it can be difficult or almost impossible to reduce stubborn belly fat through diet and exercise alone. If you struggle with excess skin or fat in your abdomen and want to feel confident in your clothes again, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
What is a Tummy Tuck, and How Does it Work?
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that smoothes and tones the appearance of your abdomen. You may choose to have a full tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck, also known as a partial abdominoplasty. The type of tummy tuck you will benefit from will depend on your needs.
During your tummy tuck, Dr. Lawton will make an incision in the natural crease of your bikini area, which will be easy to hide with clothing or a bathing suit. She will then remove excess skin from your abdomen and strengthen the underlying muscles to help you achieve a smoother and more toned look. You can choose to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction for a more dramatic sculpting effect.
