A tummy tuck in Columbus, Ohio, also known as an abdominoplasty, is the surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. If you’re one of the many people with a flabby belly courtesy of pregnancy, weight loss or heredity, a tummy tuck may be for you. Request a consultation at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery to find out.
For many people, the abdomen is a very bothersome area of the body. Some men and women work hard to improve their shape, with good results just about everywhere except their tummies. Women whose multiple pregnancies stretched their abdominal muscles and skin often find their tummies especially resistant to change. Some people whose weight is normal say their bellies have never been flat, even when they were young.
The best candidates for a tummy tuck are women or men who are in relatively good shape and have fat deposits or loose abdominal skin that has not responded to diet, exercise or both. This procedure can be used alone or in combination with liposuction to achieve the results you are looking for. Your surgeon can provide you with more details specific to your individual needs.
Partial and complete abdominoplasties can be performed as outpatient procedures, in an outpatient surgical center, an office-based facility, or a hospital. The results of a tummy tuck are usually long lasting, particularly if you are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Although a Tummy tuck is suitable for most patients some patients prefer a Mini Tummy Tuck as an alternative. The procedure is best suited for patients with a pouch instead of saggy skin. It is also suitable for patients with stretch marks resulting from a C-Section and it is a less intensive procedure then a regular tummy tuck.
