Unwanted belly fat is one of the top reasons why men and women seek plastic surgery. An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, improves personal appearance by removing extra skin and fat in the abdominal area caused by aging, pregnancy, heredity, prior surgery or significant fluctuations in weight. Indeed, many healthy individuals still have extra fat and skin around their midsection regardless of regular diet and exercise.
Abdominoplasty is not the same as liposuction, though many patients undergo both procedures at the same time. Bella Cosmetic Surgery offers a "lipoabdominoplasty" known as the Bella Body Lift, during which the upper body region from below the breasts to just above the bikini line is contoured for a younger, healthier look. Patients can also achieve their desired look by combining the procedure with a breast reduction, breast lift, augmentation or even facial laser resurfacing. This versatile procedure owes much of its popularity to the fact that it creates an instant and dramatic result with a moderate amount of down time. The best candidates are in good shape but still suffer from unwanted fat deposits and extra skin. A tummy tuck is a great option for mothers, particularly those who have had multiple children. With pregnancy, skin stretches significantly and often loses its elasticity, especially over the course of multiple pregnancies. A tummy tuck addresses excess skin and may remove a number of related stretch marks.
It’s no surprise that abdominoplasy surgery is gaining popularity. With a smoother stomach and leaner figure, patients will feel more comfortable in form-fitted clothing, as well as their favorite summer swimsuit. These surgeries are long lasting when patients follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
