Top Three Questions About The Tummy Tuck in Philadelphia

Tummy Tuck Philadelphia
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a one-of-a-kind body contouring procedure that can provide a patient with life changing, belly flattening benefits. There are several questions that men and women have when considering a tummy tuck for themselves. Here are the top three:

Can loose skin be tightened with traditional dieting or exercise?

Unfortunately, too many have tried to exercise and diet their way to tighter skin, but the results are never satisfying. The loose skin that is left around the abdomen is often the result of the skin being stretched over long periods of time due to factors, such as pregnancy or weight gain. Once your body reverts back to a smaller figure, the stretched skin often lacks the elasticity to completely tighten up to the new contours. While diet and exercise are important for maintaining a healthy weight as well as building or toning muscle, they cannot help with skin elasticity. A surgical procedure like a tummy tuck is the only effective way for removing the excess skin.

Is a Tummy Tuck in Philadelphia an Effective Weight Loss Method?

No! A tummy tuck – or any cosmetic procedure – should never be used as an alternative to diet or exercise. These body contouring treatments are intended to provide healthy men and women with a means to treat problem areas that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. In fact, a tummy tuck does not address excess deposits of fat, so it is important for patients to already be at a healthy, stable weight before surgery. However, some patients may benefit from safely combining their tummy tuck procedure with liposuction to remove stubborn deposits of unwanted fat.

Will My Scars Be Noticeable After Surgery?

The incision lines of your tummy tuck are permanent, but they will significantly fade over time. The tummy tuck in Philadelphia consists of a horizontal incision from hipbone to hipbone. Your cosmetic surgeon will make the incision just below where your underwear sits in order to minimize scar visibility. Most tummy tuck patients are able to easily keep their incision lines hidden beneath their underwear, lingerie and bathing suits. In fact, the tummy tuck in Philadelphia is even occasionally used to remove C-Section scars and stretch marks.
