Just by looking at the high-waisted jeans, crop tops, and models of today, you can tell that athletic stomachs are “in” right now. That spells trouble for those of us with a little junk in the front. It might be that no matter how fit you are or how many crunches you can do, stubborn fat or excess skin on your abdomen that won’t go away are hiding your washboard abs. You might also have gone through a period of pregnancy or extreme weight loss that left your stomach with stretch marks, excess skin, or loose muscles. No matter the situation, tummy tucks are quickly becoming the hottest procedures in the cosmetic industry because of its many benefits.
Keeping It Tight
Loose abdominal muscles are some of the most common causes of protruding bellies. When diet and exercise fails, the tummy tuck is often the only solution that can fix everything. During the tummy tuck, your surgeon will tighten your abdominal muscles so that you’ll get a much flatter, toned, and athletic stomach.
Removing Excess Skin
Even though liposuction is one of the most popular procedures in the world, it doesn’t do much in the way of removing excess skin, which is often one of the most common issues that people face in their abdominal area. That’s why one of the requirements of liposuction is having skin with great elasticity. Dr. Silverton has improved on the tummy tuck by adding liposuction and skin tightening to the procedure, that way his patients get maximum belly-toning results. The tightening effects of the tummy tuck are also great for removing stretch marks below the belly button, one of the unsightlier side effects of weight gain and pregnancy.
A Mini-Tummy Tuck
If you want those beach-ready abs, but you feel like you don’t have stretched out or weak abdominal muscles to justify a regular tummy tuck, a mini-tummy tuck might fare better for you. A mini-tummy tuck is liposuction with excess skin removal that focus on the area below your belly button. It’s more efficient, there’s no scar around the belly button, and it’s perfect for people who only need work on the lower abdomen.
Dr. Silverton’s Tummy Tuck
Dr. Silverton himself has pioneered a new and improved version of the tummy tuck with even more benefits. His technique not only allows liposuction to remove more fat in a safer way, but his procedure allows for more blood flow to reach the site of surgery, reducing the risk of complications and speeding up recovery time.
A tummy tuck just might be one of the more en vogue procedures around right now, but it’s important for you to find the right surgeon to work with. Contact Dr. Silverton now, for a consultation on his new and improved tummy tuck.
