Turning your bulges into curves is as simple as a tummy tuck surgery with the right board certified surgeon. Medically this procedure is known as an abdominoplasty, which refers to the tightening and removal of skin, as well as fat in the abdominal region.
This is important because abdominal laxity can cause postural problems, pain and also looks quite unsightly. Unfortunately, we don’t get to pick our genes when we’re born – however, we do have the option of choosing the best plastic surgeons in the mid-west, Scottsdale region to administer our tummy tuck procedure though.
This surgery technique is used to both tighten the abdominals and any skin in the surrounding area. Majorly excess skin is also commonly removed completely in the case of major weight loss or birth complications. Recovery time is generally a few weeks, but may be loner depending on how complex your surgery is and what strategy is used.
There are three main types of procedures: a complete, partial and extended abdominoplasty – there are also two others, one called a high lateral tension, and another called floating (FAB technique). The surgeons you visit will be able to recommend which technique will be best for your unique situation.
After all, every body is different and special, so a free personal consultation is where everyone should start. From there, you’ll be able to ask the doctor questions, get his opinion on why a specific technique will or will not work best for you, and what the next steps are.
Abdominal surgeries can sometimes have added recovery times and precautions. The abs and lower back are used to stabilize many objects you lift throughout your day. There’s a good chance you’ll need to take off time from work and high intensity exercise. However, walking and more gentler activities are still allowed, and are actually recommended to help speed up healing.
If you have the time, Arizona is a wonderful vacation spot – many clients visit and stay after their tummy tuck operation. Playing out, getting some sun, and going for some yummy dinner always does the body good, helping it heal faster.
