any men and women are plagued by unwanted fat in the abdominal area. If they choose to address it with diet and exercise, they may find that they are left with excess skin in their midsection. This can also occur for patients who have had liposuction performed in the past, or for patients who have gone through one or more pregnancies. This excess skin can hang and become an unsightly part of one’s body. With the help of Dr. Jessica Belz, many men and women can find a solution that can help tighten this area such as the tummy tuck procedure.
Understanding the tummy tuck procedure
Dr. Jessica Belz describes the tummy tuck procedure as a way of removing excess skin in the abdominal area. The tummy tuck procedure is done in a way that reduces the appearance of scarring. The treatment is done by removing skin from the midsection and then re-suturing the area. The belly button is also repositioned into a more aesthetically pleasing location to ensure that the results look as natural as possible when completed. The tummy tuck procedure may be done on its own, or may be combined with other services such as liposuction or a “mommy makeover.”
Who is a candidate?
Any patient who has excess skin on the abdominal area and is a healthy adult who can undergo general anesthetics is often a good candidate for the tummy tuck procedure. We do encourage patients to book consultation visits with our staff to determine their candidacy and to ask questions about the procedure. We want our patients to be completely knowledgeable about their treatment and fully understand what to expect when it comes to healing and recovery. Patients should also have realistic expectations of what can and cannot be achieved with plastic surgery.
