Denver Tummy Tuck ( Abdominoplasty Surgery )
A protruding abdomen can be a cause of distress for men and women alike. It can be the result of heredity, excess fat, weak abdominal muscles, pregnancy or loose skin that has been over-stretched and no longer responds to diet and exercise. More and more people are experiencing these problems, as wellness becomes part of their daily lives. For those who have experienced a massive weight loss, their only alternative to loose overhanging skin is surgery.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to flatten a protruding abdomen by tightening the muscles in the abdominal wall and removing excess fatty tissue and skin. It is designed to give a firm and smooth appearance of the abdomen. A flat stomach gives a physically fit appearance and can allow you to wear certain clothes with more confidence. The procedure is a common one and can benefit men and women who are bothered by a protruding abdomen. Dr. Serota recommends abdominoplasty for patients that have stabilized in their weight loss program or who feel they are close to their ideal weight. At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center, many patients combine their tummy tuck with other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery to achieve their overall new look.
Abdominoplasty, whether partial or complete, produces excellent results for patients with weakened abdominal muscles or excess skin. And in most cases, the results are long lasting, if you follow a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
