It only makes sense that you want your new shape after abdominoplasty to be perfect, but you might be left wondering how to ensure you get a good outcome from a tummy tuck.With just a bit of research and planning focused on these three important factors, you should be able to see beautiful tummy tuck results.*
1. Startwith Realistic Goals
Before you start planning the ins and outs of yourtummy tuck, you need to have a clear idea of what your goals are. Remember that this is a body contouring procedure and not a weight loss treatment, so you shouldn’t expect to drop numbers on the scale or end up with six-pack abs the next morning.
What abdominoplasty can do, however, istighten loose skin and repair loose muscle tissue, leaving you with a tighter, more toned-looking physique. If you’re already at or close to your target weight but need help addressing excess skin or separated abdominals, you might be ready for a tummy tuck.*
2. Choose a Skilled Plastic Surgeon
Your tummy tuck results can only be as good as your plastic surgeon is skilled. So take some time to do your research before making your final decision. Ask your plastic surgeon about the abdominoplasty techniques he or she uses, where your belly button would be placed and what your scar might look like.
Check for board certification, online reviews and before and after tummy tuck photos when picking a plastic surgeon.
If you want to see the best results from a tummy tuck, talk to your plastic surgeon about adding liposuction to your procedure. This won’t require any extra downtime, yet can noticeably enhance your results if you’re having troubling slimming down trouble spots on your waist, hips or thighs.
