Tummy Tucks: Not Just for Hollywood Stars

Since the 1990s, many women have been hearing about tummy tucks and they know that this plastic surgery procedure is not just for Hollywood moms. In fact, there has been an increase in this particular type of surgery year-after-year amongst women in America.

When people choose to have tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), their surgeons remove excess layers of skin and fat from the abdominal region. Usually, if people can pinch more than two inches of skin/fat between their forefingers and thumbs, they are good candidates for this type of surgery.

However, there are many cases where women who have had children maintain a lower belly pooch due to loose fascia that rips during birthing, not fat. When this happens, that particular area may constantly stick out.

If women eat a balanced diet, workout, and are still unable to get rid of belly fat, they may wish to pursue a tummy tuck to improve their appearance. The good news is that the recovery time needed after an abdominoplasty is relatively short and after people have healed they can go back to their daily activities.

Have questions about getting a tummy tuck? Contact a Westlake Village plastic surgeon now to find out if you are a good candidate for this type of surgery.
