Designed to correct a protruding abdomen, a tummy tuck addresses unwanted excess skin and tightens the underlying abdominal musculature. The goal is a more toned and flatter midsection. Although a tummy tuck will slim your waistline, it is not a weight-loss tool.
At Dr. Fugo Plastic Surgery & Laser Skin Care Center, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Fugo is often asked by patients if they should lose weight before their tummy tuck. While the answer is unique to each patient, this blog from Dr. Fugo can shed light on how weight loss — and weight gain — will affect your tummy tuck.
While some plastic surgery procedures are purely cosmetic, the tummy tuck is unique in that it has both aesthetic and medical benefits. For some of Dr. Fugo’s patients, the medical benefits can be a major draw.
When it comes to achieving a flatter and smoother stomach, there are several choices available to you. In our last blog, we explored tummy tuck surgery as well as liposuction. While these are the best options for many men and women, Dr. Fugo understands that each of his patients has unique needs that may best be met through another form of cosmetic enhancement. Here, we look at other options that can help you achieve a sleek and sexy tummy.
Many men and women are self-conscious of their midsection. Whether it because of fat accumulation, a protruding belly, or loose and sagging skin—a less than perfect midsection can cause individuals to feel dissatisfied and uncomfortable with their figure or physique. As such, Dr. Fugo’s New Windsor patients are relieved to know that there are options available to them.
Liposuction and Tummy tuck are two of Dr. Fugo’s most popular tummy toning procedures. While both are means to a fitter and flatter you, tummy tuck surgery and liposuction achieve results in very different ways.
