Bikini season is just one month away which means that it’s time to think about getting your body into the best shape of your life. In addition to exercising and eating right, we have another way that you can get your stomach ready in time for pool weather. But how? With a tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Watterson will make an incision just above the pubic bone and extending out to your hips. Then, he will tighten any muscles, remove and tighten loose skin, and get rid of any excess fat. The result? A tight, taut tummy after you have recovered. But, what else can a tummy tuck do for you?
Tighten Loose Stomach Muscles
During pregnancy, your stomach muscles may shift and loosen which can leave you with little bulges on your stomach that weren’t there before. While also tightening loose skin, Dr. Watterson can also tighten your muscles to get rid of any abnormalities.
Get Rid of Excess Skin
The number one thing that tummy tuck can do is get rid of loose excess skin. Whether you have excess skin because you have lost a lot of weight or you have been pregnant before, it’s safe to stay that it can make you feel extremely self conscious when you’re in a swimsuit. During your tummy tuck, we won’t just tighten loose skin but we will remove some of it too so that you have a taut stomach to show off at the pool.
Get Rid of Excess fat
If you have a little bit of stubborn, excess fat around your middle (who doesn’t) as well, then we can perform a little bit of liposuction as part of your tummy tuck. The combination of these two procedures is more common than not because since we are already fixing your stomach, we may as well get rid of excess fat in the process.
If tightening muscles, getting rid of excess skin, and eliminating excess fat, doesn’t sound like a miracle surgery to you, then we don’t know what is. To learn more about tummy tucks, contact us at our Draper office and call 801-571-2020.
