Losing weight can be a challenge for just about anyone. Time spent focusing on diet and exercise can pay significant dividends for your general health as well as your appearance. Yet for some people, significant weight loss leaves them with excess loose skin around the abdominal region.
This might leave you with a slightly deflated sense of self-esteem, despite your proud efforts. Here at Julie Kupersmith MD, PC’s New Rochelle, New York clinic, our cosmetic surgeons applaud the efforts of all people who manage to shed significant pounds. In this light, we also have several potential treatments to help address loose skin and other troubled areas.
One treatment we might recommend is an abdominoplasty. Also known as a tummy tuck, this is a cosmetic surgical designed to remove excess fat and skin to give you a more visually appealing abdominal section.
In some cases, a tummy tuck can also help to address any issues with muscle separation that occurred when you initially gained the weight. This is more likely to be an issue if you were overweight for a significant amount of time.
At your initial consultation, your surgeon will evaluate the muscle structure and shape in your abdominal region. This will help to understand the state of your current abdominal structure so we can present you with treatment options as well as other lifestyle modifications to consider.
It’s important to understand that abdominoplasty is not intended to be a weight loss program. This method of treatment is not designed to remove excess fat and cannot effectively treat health complications or conditions resulting from obesity.
