As much as we hate to admit, our external appearance is directly tied to our inner self-confidence. Whether you are navigating post-pregnancy weight loss or simply losing extra pounds, it often feels like you cannot achieve desired results. That is when the realization comes that you cannot diet or exercise away excess skin.
“People find they lose subcutaneous fat more easily in the upper body, while belly fat and skin remains,” says Dr. Davila, “a problem that only worsens through your 30’s, 40’s and beyond despite maintaining the same level of physical activity and dietary habits.”
If you are struggling with a similar issue, the silver lining is that ESANA has assisted numerous people in this situation. We understand you want to feel fantastic in whatever clothing you wish to wear, from normal every day outfits, athletic gear to swimwear.
Feeling good in your body again is possible! For many ESANA patients, a tummy tuck / abdominoplasty is a solution that has helped them regain that confidence and achieve their personal goals.
Abdominoplasty: The Details
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and can repair any muscle weakness. It works by contouring your mid-section to re-shape your abdominal wall. It is a procedure that requires general anesthesia and takes anywhere from one to three hours. Our surgeons will carefully remove excess skin and fat and repair any separated muscles, leaving you with a flatter stomach. Post-surgery, you will need to heed your surgeon’s instructions to ensure that the area heals appropriately. While it is a procedure that requires some downtime, the transformational results will make it worthwhile.
Many question whether they need a tummy tuck or if other treatment options like CoolSculpting or Evolve can help them reach their physique goals.
Every person is different and depending on a physical exam, our physicians can determine which treatments would be best. CoolSculpting or Evolve are skin toning and fat reduction treatments that require little to no downtime. While they are effective and incredible treatment options for some looking to improve targeted areas, those looking to shed excess skin may experience superior results from surgical removal performed during a tummy tuck.
