What Are the Signs You May Need Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Featured Image

Many people realize that often no amount of healthy eating or abdominal exercises seems to get rid of excess sagging skin around their stomachs. This is a common problem for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, aging, or pregnancy. When the skin has been stretched beyond its limit of elasticity, it often fails to return to its original firmness. This is where tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arun Rao at Rao Plastic Surgery in Tucson, AZ can help. This surgical procedure removes excess sagging skin and tightens the abdominal area.

Is your stomach protruding despite a healthy lifestyle?

A protruding belly can occur even when maintaining a balanced diet and regular exercise regimen. This can often be due to weakened or separated abdominal muscles — a condition known as diastasis recti. This happens when the rectus abdominis muscles, which run down the middle of the stomach, separate during pregnancy or due to obesity. The result is a stubborn belly bulge that diet and exercise alone cannot fix. A tummy tuck surgery can repair these muscles, giving you a flatter and firmer abdomen and restoring self-confidence.

Do you have loose skin that affects your daily activities?

Loose skin in the abdominal area is not only a cosmetic issue but can also interfere with your daily activities or ability to exercise comfortably. It can cause discomfort, skin irritation, or even infections in the skin folds. Sagging skin can also limit your wardrobe choices, making wearing form-fitting clothes or swimsuits challenging. You can address these concerns by opting for abdominoplasty with Dr. Rao.

Are you unhappy with your body despite weight loss success?

If you have worked hard to lose significant weight, it can be discouraging to find that you're still unhappy with your body shape due to loose skin. Sagging skin after weight loss is a common issue, and it's essential to realize that it's not your fault. It's simply the skin's natural response to rapid weight loss. Tummy tuck surgery at Rao Plastic Surgery can help you cross the finish line by removing this loose skin and refining the contours of your body.
