5There are many reasons for wanting to look and feel your best. It is a widely known fact that when people achieve their physical goals whether it is through diet, exercise or plastic surgery, their confidence soars. There is much to be said for wanting a flat tummy. The abdominal area of the body when strong denotes a healthy and fit individual.

Tightening the Abs

Tummy Tucks have gained in popularity as women and men all over the world have realized that they no longer have to be plagued by flabby tummies. If your abdominal area has been stretched due to extreme weight loss or several pregnancies, a tummy tuck will eliminate hanging skin and fatty tissue while tightening up the area. In scientific terms, a tummy tuck is called an “abdominoplasty” and is designed to flatten and contour the abdominal region.

Techniques Vary

Although the tummy tuck procedures today generally address the bulging abdomen, the degree to which they do so varies. The traditional tummy tuck deals with the protruding abdomen by opening the abdomen from one hip to the other just above the pubic line. If there is a lot of skin that needs to be removed, the plastic surgeon will need to make an incision around the belly button to better separate the skin from the musculature. The muscles are then sutured for tightening, then the entire abdominal skin flap is moved down so the excess is removed and the incision is closed.

A partial or mini tummy tuck is a less intense operation that is done when fat deposits are localized below the navel only. This is appropriate for people who don’t have a lot of looseness in the upper abdominal area, but who wish to remove the lower belly consisting mostly of fat and some excess skin, which is removed without releasing or moving the belly button. Only the musculature of the lower abdomen is tightened with this procedure.
