If you have undergone bariatric surgery or lost a significant amount of weight over your lifetime, you may struggle with loose and sagging skin around the abdominal area. Many people who have lost a lot of weight are left with excess skin and a protruding belly that is difficult to hide under certain types of clothing. Tummy tuck surgery can correct both of these problems by reshaping your entire midsection. We can help you get that flat stomach you’ve always wanted with a tummy tuck procedure.
Here are some key reasons why you may need a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) after weight loss:
Get Rid of Excess Abdominal Skin
One of the biggest benefits of undergoing tummy tuck surgery is finally getting rid of that annoying excess skin that wouldn’t go away with diet and exercise. If you have rolls of excess skin around the midsection and are uncomfortable in certain types of clothing, tummy tuck surgery can resolve the problem for good. Dr. Kent will carefully reduce excess skin to create a taut and tighter appearance around the abdominal wall.
Tighten the Abdominal Wall
If you have a protruding abdomen because of weak or stretched abdominal muscles, you may be the perfect candidate for tummy tuck surgery. The tummy tuck procedure involves tightening and repositioning the abdominal muscles to restore the abdominal wall and create a stronger foundation.
Get Rid of Stretch Marks
Once they are there, stretch marks are nearly impossible to lose. In some instances, a tummy tuck can get rid of stretch marks by removing the excess skin and tissue in areas where the skin has become damaged. Dr. Kent will use special techniques to remove areas of stretched skin and reposition the tissues to create a more streamlined appearance.
