Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, creates a sleek, flatter stomach by eliminating excessive, loose skin and fat as well as tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. A tummy tuck can improve areas where exercise and diet fail. Many people do dozens of crunches and abdominal exercises every day, but simply cannot get the attractive stomach they desire. Pregnancy and weight loss, as well as your genes can cause the abdominal skin to stretch and sag excessively.
A tummy tuck surgically removes the excess skin and fat, while the abdominal muscles are pulled together and tightened, resulting in the entire area becoming flat, tight, and looking fit. While it is more aggressive and invasive than liposuction, it is more effective in flattening loose, overhanging skin on the abdomen. Dr. Young has been performing Tummy Tuck procedures in San Antonio for many years. Please view some of our before and after photos for examples of recent tummy tuck surgeries.
A tummy tuck in San Antonio will enhance your body contour by making your abdomen firmer and flatter. You may find that you feel more comfortable in your clothing and are more confident about your appearance. The incisions from the procedure will heal and fade over time. It is important to realize, however, that the incision lines will be permanently visible. In some instances, they will eventually be only faint lines. Certain individuals may have incision lines that are more noticeable but fortunately, the incisions for your abdominoplasty are usually in locations concealed by most bathing suits and undergarments.
