Prior to your abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck,” you may be wondering whether the procedure will cause you to lose weight. Theoretically, you will lose some weight after an abdominoplasty because the surgery involves removing fat and skin directly from your body. This elimination will result in a slight weight loss. But for our Detroit area abdominoplasty patients, a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure. It is a body sculpting procedure.
Many people opt for an abdominoplasty because they have been unsuccessful at achieving a flat stomach – despite tirelessly attempting diets and exercise aimed specifically at reducing stomach fat.
Benefits of an abdominoplasty:
- Repairs stomach muscles that may have been damaged during pregnancy or as a result of an excessive weight gain in the abdominal region.
- Can drastically improve your self-image and self-confidence.
- Allows you to enjoy more clothing options.
- Results will remain long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, stick to a wholesome diet, and follow a regular exercise regimen.
