What is Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck?
Procedure in which excess fat and skin is removed and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles, creating a smoother and more toned abdominal profile. Even people with normal body weight and proportion can develop a protruding, loose and flabby abdomen. The most common causes of these situations include:
• Significant fluctuations in weight;
• Previous surgery.
Need to lose weight to do abdominoplasty?
It depends on the case. That is why it is important to do the abdominoplasty surgery process with a specialist and well experienced plastic surgeon. In the face-to-face consultation, he will be able to analyze whether or not you need to lose weight to do abdominoplasty.
It is important to note: abdominoplasty should not be considered as a treatment for obesity or a replacement for diets and physical exercises. When applying for abdominoplasty plastic surgery, you basically need to be healthy.
A valuable tip is that if you are interested in losing weight, do it before surgery. This is because by eliminating weight after abdominal surgery, it can generate flabby tissue again.
