Losing your weight is almost always a hard and long process, during which you have to change your life, sometimes quite dramatically – you should start controlling the products you are consuming and the way you spend your free time. The era of eating salty snacks, drinking soda in front of your TV or at the computer is ended. The exercise should become the integral part of your life, together with healthy and well-balanced diet, and if you want a long-term result, you should change your lifestyle for good.
Practicing makes perfect, and sooner or later, going at your own pace, you surely lose the weight you wanted. But, in most times, because of the low level of elasticity of your skin, your body may not keep up with your fat loss, and this can make your skin look sagging. This will sure hide the results you have achieved, especially is the abdominal areas. What can you do to overcome the problem? Many people continue to work even harder than before hoping to grow extra muscles that will reshape the contours of their tummy, but sometimes this may not help. The most effective thing is such case would be the procedure called ‘tummy tuck’ (the official name is abdominoplasty) – the surgical procedure consisting in removing the excess skin and fat from your abdominal area and tightening the muscles of abdominal wall.
Thus, if you exercise a lot, but the fat deposit at your abdominal area just won’t respond to exercise and dieting, you may address plastic surgery clinic and remove it. The best candidates for the procedure are also women, which had one or several pregnancies and stretched their abdominal muscles to such extend where they are not able to return back to normal. Still, if you are planning to have a baby in some time, you should wait for a while, as long as muscles tightened during the operation will surely be separated when pregnant.
Those who undergo the procedure of tummy tuck should remember that the scar will almost likely be prominent and stay with you for a long time. It is also important that you have realistic expectations for the surgery and remember that, first of all, tummy tuck is not an easy way to lose weight – you should exercise a lot to keep up to the same shape you get after procedure to have long-term results. Abdominoplasty may boost your self-confidence, yet it is not a miracle – it is a hard work.
