When the skin and muscles in the abdomen are stretched, you may suffer from sagging skin tissues that make your tummy look weak and lack definition. Even if you exercise regularly and lead a healthy lifestyle, you can’t do much about skin laxity. We perform personalized tummy tucks to remove excess skin tissues and tighten the abdominal walls.
Your firm and contoured abdomen awaits
Most want to achieve and maintain a firm, contoured, and well-defined abdomen. But age-related changes, weight changes, pregnancy, and genetics can lead to sagging skin tissues that prevent you from appreciating the results of regular exercise and diets. Dr. Khan performs a personalized tummy tuck surgery to help you achieve a firm, taut, and contoured abdomen.
What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin tissues from the abdomen. The surgeon removes sagging skin tissues and tightens the underlying abdominal walls to make your tummy look firm, tight, and strong. If necessary, a tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction to reduce stubborn fat deposits.
Am I a suitable candidate for a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is suitable for anyone suffering from excessive skin laxity and weakened abdominal muscles. If you also have a protruding belly because of stubborn fat, the procedure can be combined with a liposuction. Generally speaking, a tummy tuck is suitable for patients who are in good general health, have realistic expectations from the procedure, and have a stable weight.
Tummy tucks are especially popular amongst women who want to reverse the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Pregnancy can stretch and damage the skin tissues and abdominal walls, leading to excessive skin laxity and a protruding belly. A tummy tuck can reverse the effects of childbirth and help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body. Dr. Khan will review your health history to ensure your candidacy.
