The mid-section is an area that many people struggle with particularly after a significant weight loss or, for women, after pregnancy, when the skin is looser and sagging and the abdominal muscles may become stretched out. Through Tummy Tuck Dr. Coville has helped many men and women achieve a more smooth, flat, and youthful-looking mid-section. While diet and exercise are an important part of any healthy lifestyle, there are some limitations, especially when it comes to excess, sagging skin. There can also be stubborn pockets of fat that are more resistant to your diet and exercise efforts and the Tummy Tuck may be paired with Liposuction to address both the excess skin and stubborn fat to achieve the desired results.
Ideal candidates for the Tummy Tuck, also called abdominoaplsty, are in good health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations. It is important to know that the Tummy Tuck procedure is performed through an incision that runs horizontally across the lower abdomen and that it will leave a permanent scar. The scar is often hidden under underwear and swimwear, so for many people the trade-off is worthwhile, but it is certainly something to consider. If you are interested in learning more about the Tummy Tuck and to find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure, contact our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Coville.
