You may have tried every type of diet and exercise but can’t seem to get the results you want at the gym. If you’re fed up and struggling to get rid of some extra belly fat, at the office of Lloyd Hoffman MD, PC, FACS, an abdominoplasty procedure may be just what you need!
Getting rid of the extra belly fat can be an endless, life-long journey. If you’re sick of trying on your own but still want to see a change, you may want to consider abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck.
Abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck is abdominal surgery to remove excess fat and skin and tighten the muscles in the stomach area, so you can achieve a flatter look. While the results can be great, a tummy tuck is major surgery so the decision to undergo the procedure should be well thought out.
The first step is to schedule a consultation with your plastic surgeon. The doctor will discuss what to expect during and after the surgery, and the type of results you can achieve. At this meeting, you should share your goals for the surgery and discuss any fears or concerns.
There are different types of abdominoplasty so based on your goals and health, your doctor will discuss what makes the most sense for you. If you determine together that a tummy tuck is the right option for you, your doctor will talk to you about how to prepare for surgery. You may need to stay in the hospital overnight for the procedure. There is a healing process involved post-surgery, but in the long run, we think you’ll love your new look and will feel great about yourself!
