If you are unhappy with the shape of your lower abdomen, it could be that you are dealing with drooping skin and extra tissues rather than with fat. Most people believe that a liposuction is the only way to reshape the abdomen. However, a tummy tuck may actually be the best option for treatment in Chicago. If you are tired of living with a loose, untoned, sagging abdomen, consider your many treatment options in our Chicago clinic today.
What Is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove unwanted skin and tissues from the lower abdomen. You may want to consider adding a liposuction onto your tummy tuck procedure so that you can see even more amazing results in one surgical time.
Our surgeon will remove the unwanted skin and tissues that are drooping over the pelvis. The remaining skin can be draped in an aesthetically pleasing way once the surgery is complete. Our surgeon can also do something else at the same time to give your abdomen an even tighter and more toned look. The abdominal muscles can also be pulled together during this procedure. Abdominals often split down the middle due to pregnancy or massive weight gain.
After your surgery, you will need to take some time away from work and from your regular activities to rest and recover. You will have dressings over the area and will initially have some swelling as well. However, within a few weeks, the swelling will go away, and you will be able to see your beautifully tight and toned abdomen.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Many people can benefit from a tummy tuck. For example, if you have had multiple pregnancies that stretched out your skin, this procedure can give you back your flat tummy. It can also be a good option for those who have lost plenty of weight and for those who have had previous surgeries in the area that have led to sagging skin.
At the John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa in Chicago, you have a variety of options for looking more youthful or getting the shape that you want. With a tummy tuck, you can get the flat, toned abdomen that you may have had years ago. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
