Losing a significant amount of weight is difficult enough without the added worry of access skin or fat deposits on your abdomen. To alter the shape and fat deposits on your abdomen can often be a significant challenge when trying to accomplish this alone. While you might have lost a healthy amount of weight, you still might want to improve the overall look of your abdomen. In a situation like this you might want to talk to Togba Ellis Plastic Surgery about a tummy tuck procedure.

A tummy tuck is also known as abdominoplasty. This is a procedure designed to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen. In a lot of cases it can also help to restore atrophied or separated abdominal muscles giving you a smoother and firmer abdominal look.

The length and shape of the incision used will vary depending on your body shape, any excess skin and your personal goals.

It’s important to keep in mind that a tummy tuck is not designed to be a simple replacement for diet and exercise. Even after you are completely healed you will need to maintain a consistent weight to keep from developing other cosmetic issues.

If you are planning a pregnancy in the future, you may want to delay the tummy tuck until after child birth.

If you have questions about a tummy tuck procedure, please feel free to call Togba Ellis Plastic Surgery at 888-811-4829 to schedule a consultation. We are here to address any questions or concerns you may have about this procedure. Let us help you achieve a look you can feel proud of!
