Most people want a sculpted abdomen with a visible muscle definition. But age, weight changes, and childbirth can make that almost impossible to achieve through exercise and diet alone. Dr. Erickson offers a tummy tuck in Houston that will turn your desire for a flatter, firmer stomach into a reality.
Achieve a Sculpted Abdomen
While diet and exercise can help you lose weight and tone your muscles, they may not be enough to eliminate the stubborn fat and loose skin around your midsection. Pregnancy and childbirth can weaken and permanently damage your abdominal muscles, making it impossible to achieve a firm abdomen with exercise alone. Meanwhile, dramatic weight loss can leave you with sagging skin that you can’t address with dieting. When all else fails, a tummy tuck gives you a tighter, more sculpted abdomen.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the stomach area and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. A tummy tuck is usually meant for people with excess skin and fat around the stomach area due to weight loss or pregnancy. The surgeon makes an incision in the lower abdomen to trim away excess skin, remove excess fat deposits, and tighten the underlying muscles. The result is a flatter, firmer stomach.
Goals of Tummy Tuck:
- Removing excess, sagging skin tissues from the midsection
- Removing excess fat deposits from the tummy
- Tightening the weakened and damaged abdominal muscles
- Achieving a flat, firm, and toned abdomen
- Reversing the effects of childbirth, pregnancy, weight loss, and age on the tummy
- Achieving a slimmer waist to improve the overall body contours
- Removing stretch marks and C-section scars below the belly button
