Mini Tummy Tuck – Reduce Lower Abdominal Fat
Learn More About Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery
Mini Tummy Tuck
Due to a tummy tuck’s ability to dramatically improve a person’s waistline, one of the biggest misconceptions about abdominoplasty is that it results in significant weight loss. However, while the numbers on the scale may not change drastically following a mini or full tummy tuck procedure, patients will look visibly slimmer and fitter, as the tummy tuck is designed to tighten and sculpt the patient’s midsection. Because abdominoplasty is used to reshape but not to lose weight, it is recommended that excess pounds be shed and a stable weight maintained before planning for the procedure.
Weight Loss Prior To The Procedure
Whether you are considering a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck, it is important to lose excess weight prior to undergoing your procedure so that your most dramatic transformation and tummy tightening can be achieved. As well, because obesity contributes to increased health risks during and after surgery, maintaining a healthy body mass index will help to ensure that you are safe and heal well.
Weight Loss During The Procedure
Although it is advisable to lose weight prior to undergoing abdominoplasty, patients who have excess skin will lose a little weight because skin can be heavy. Individuals who have significant excess skin may immediately lose ten or more pounds from their abdomen as a result of removing this excess, however, many people lose less than five pounds, because it doesn’t necessarily take a lot to make a dramatic, visible difference.
Patients who undergo a full tummy tuck are more likely to have a larger amount of skin removed and larger people have a bigger surface rea. Supplementary liposuction is often performed along with a tummy tuck to further sculpt the figure. You might expect to lose a few pounds this way as well, though the visible difference and the incredible way that your clothes fit afterward is what will really make you feel rejuvenated. While the procedure may not result in significant immediate weight loss, it often makes future weight loss easier as mobility becomes easier with the excess gone.
Maintaining Your Weight
In order to ensure that you maintain the results of your tummy tuck, it is important to follow all aftercare instructions provided by your surgeon. Taking great care not to increase your consumption of calories while you are healing will help to prevent new fat cells from appearing.
A healthy diet and consistent exercise routine is an important key to ensuring that you feel as good as you look and keep the benefits of your procedure for a long time. In addition, it is advisable that women wait until they have finished having children before undergoing a tummy tuck because though pregnancy is possible again, they may adversely affect the results of the procedure.
Although abdominoplasty should not be viewed as a weight loss solution, it is a transformative surgery which can restore your waistline and confidence.
