Many of us struggle with the flabby abdomen that resists our efforts to firm up with diet and exercise. We cut out our favorite foods and try every stomach crunch exercise out there, and still we wrestle with a flabby belly. Your belly problems can be the result of genetics, age, or previous pregnancies that make it almost impossible for you to achieve the look you are working so hard to get. Lubbock board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rowley, says liposuction or a tummy tuck can take care of saggy and flabby stomachs. But which surgery is right for you? Each surgery targets different problems and can be combined for dramatic results.
Tummy tuck plastic surgery is a skin removal procedure that does not emphasize fat removal. It is not a weight loss surgery. After extreme weight loss or pregnancy, skin can get stretched to the point of no return. Excess skin can hang and sag even if you do not have large amounts of fat. A tummy tuck will remove this extra skin and give your abdomen a flatter, smoother look. Abdominal muscles are also tightened at the same time.
This is where the fat removal happens. Small incisions target areas where your board certified plastic surgeon will use a surgical instrument to suction out fat. This procedure isn’t limited to just your belly area. Your doctor can sculpt and shape your body to give your appearance more definition around your belly, hips, back and other areas of your body. While this is also not seen as a weight loss surgery, it is an effective method for giving your body contour and shape where fat bulges in the way.
Talk to your surgeon about the possibility of having these two procedures in tandem. Dramatic results happen when patients remove stubborn fat at the same time as tightening loose skin. Dr. Rowley is the leading plastic surgeon in Lubbock, TX with the professional expertise and artistic hand to give you the confidence you want in your physical appearance.
