Having a child is one of life’s most precious gifts. It is both a blessing and a miracle for a mother. However, pregnancy causes a heavy amount of wear and tear on a woman’s physique and the aftermath of childbirth often results in excess baby weight, sagging skin, and weak or torn muscles in the abdominal area.
WHY CONSIDER A TUMMY TUCK?
These physical changes to a woman’s body may cause her to feel insecure about her appearance. In fact, that is why many mothers in the Houston, TX area choose to consult with Dr. Peter Chang of Timeless Plastic Surgery.
Many women, especially those who have had multiple pregnancies, find that even after losing the baby weight, they still have unflattering sagging skin in the abdominal area. Even with regular diet and exercise, many mothers find that they cannot achieve the body they once had before having children.
For women who are at a healthy weight and find that exercise is not helping them achieve their body goals, a tummy tuck is an effective option. By correcting the negative effects of pregnancy, moms can receive the gift that keeps on giving – the gift of confidence!
WHAT IS TUMMY TUCK SURGERY?
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure performed to correct protruding, loose skin in the lower abdomen. During this procedure, excess skin is removed, and weak or separated muscles are tightened.
At Timeless Plastic Surgery, our surgeons utilize a special technique known as the “Timeless Tuck” that rejuvenates a woman’s entire abdominal area and gives her an “internal girdle.” This procedure blends liposuction (“lipoplasty”) and tummy tuck surgery to address the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, hips, flanks, back, and axilla (bra bulge). These are often the common fatty areas women have trouble getting rid of even with a proper exercise and diet regimen.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER TUMMY TUCK SURGERY?
Depending on each patient’s circumstance and goals they are looking to achieve, a specialized surgery will be performed. For the most part, tummy tuck surgery and liposuction are performed as an outpatient procedure. Women can expect a few weeks of recovery and experience some swelling and discomfort, which will be well-managed with prescribed medication.
With proper maintenance, such as regular diet and exercise, patients can expect long-lasting and satisfying results after undergoing tummy tuck surgery.
If you are ready to give the mother in your life the gift of confidence, the “Timeless Tuck” may be the perfect gift.
