Dr. Ramirez Gavidia RG Abdominoplasty in Nashville
A flat, toned abdomen is universally sought after. However, sometimes diet and exercise are simply not enough to achieve this goal. In many cases, a person can still have a protruding abdomen or loose and sagging skin while being at a normal body weight. Pregnancy and significant shifts in weight can stretch-out the skin that surrounds your abdomen. When this happens, your internal muscles may also be pulled open.
This can produce a pushed-out stomach appearance. Contributing Factors:
- Genetics/ Heredity
- Prior Surgery
- Significant Fluctuations in Weight
Addressing the combination of the fat layer, the compromised skin, and the abdominal wall is the multifaceted nature of performing an abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin and restores separated muscles. This surgery creates a tighter contour by cinching the abdominal wall helping patients achieve a more youthful, streamlined aesthetic.
