Abdominoplasty from board-certified
You can finally achieve a flat, smooth belly with an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, procedure. Getting that perfect tummy can be a difficult accomplishment. Weight fluctuations, aging and pregnancy can leave the abdominal muscles weak, even separated, and cause the surrounding skin to become loose and sagging.
Often, proper healthy diets and regular exercise cannot provide a completely firm tummy, leaving many people frustrated and embarrassed by their bodies. In addition, normal aging or childbirth can cause weakened abdominal muscles to relax, creating fullness in the lower abdomen that doesn't go away with dieting and exercise.
No one should struggle to find clothes that fit properly, but sagging skin around your tummy can make it difficult to wear your favorite jeans or make wearing dress slacks and fitted dresses a nightmare. And even fit people can become self-conscious when in a state of undress with a significant other.
At Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Nesmith can help alleviate your anxiety about excess fat and skin around the abdomen with a tummy tuck, giving you a more youthful-looking, contoured body.
Gainesville tummy tuck procedures
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a fairly common procedure that thousands of men and women undergo each year. This cosmetic procedure eliminates unwanted, excess fat, as well as sagging or loose skin which is often found when a patient’s weight fluctuates significantly during a short period of time.
A tummy tuck generally focuses on the abdomen, but can include the removal of fat from the hips and back as well. In addition to a tummy tuck, patients often undergo other fat-removal procedures at the same time so that it is easier for Dr. Nesmith to sculpt a smooth, firm body that is in line with the patient’s body shape.
Tummy tucks are not a solution for weight loss. They are used to help patients achieve their ideal, sculpted body. Losing weight and firming your abdominal muscles won’t always tighten the skin, especially in older patients whose skin has lost a lot of elasticity. Getting a Gainesville tummy tuck also doesn’t mean you failed in your dieting and exercising endeavors, it’s just a way to complement your efforts so your body looks as good as you feel.
