Even if you are properly dieting and exercising, the most difficult part of your body to tone is usually your abdomen. Factors like extreme weight fluctuations, the aging process, or pregnancy can lead to changes in the muscles in the skin in the abdominal area, resulting in sagging muscles and retaining of excess fat. No matter what the cause may be, sometimes no number of green smoothies or workout routines can help you achieve the results you are looking for. If your abdominal contours are bothering you, you should consider undergoing a tummy tuck procedure in Miami.
The Tummy Tuck
This procedure in Miami can help you obtain the body that you have been looking for. Medically known as an abdominoplasty, a tuck helps to eliminate excess skin and abdominal fat to tighten your skin and muscles. At long last, you can wear that clothing that you have been trying to fit into.
If you need some excess fat and skin removed, this procedure will help to tighten the muscles of your abdominal wall. You will not have excess skin and you will have a tighter, flatter, and more toned stomach. Even though this procedure can remove some excess fat, you should realize that it is not a substitute for healthy weight loss.
Lipo or Tummy Tuck?
The answer depends upon what type of results you are looking for. A liposuction procedure only involves the removal of subcutaneous fat. So unless your skin is supple and elastic so that it can instantly readjust to this sudden loss of fat, you may have some excess skin remaining.
Although a tuck can remove some excess fat, it is used to tighten excess abdominal skin. The typical patient is someone who has already lost weight but has excess skin requiring removal.
If you would like to experience both skin tightening and weight loss, you can always combine the two procedures to get the best of both worlds.
Good candidates for a tuck procedure in Miami are those who are having difficulty returning their abdominal area to how it appeared before giving birth. Good candidates have difficulty maintaining a toned stomach and are near their optimal body weight. Good candidates also include those who have undergone extreme weight fluctuations and need some excess skin to be removed.
