Phoenix Abdominoplasty

Diet and exercise may not always give you the flat tummy you want. Many a time, especially after pregnancy or significant weight loss, you end up week abdominal muscles that are difficult to tone up.

And it can get frustrating, especially if you have been making all the sacrifices and commitment into maintaining a regular diet and exercise regimen.

While frustration is evident, there is a solution available in something like a phoenix abdominoplasty.

Tummy tucks or an abdominoplasty is not a weight loss tool, but a surgical procedure performed under anesthesia to complement your weight loss efforts. It helps by removing unresponsive fat and excess skin, and tightening stretched muscles into a smoother shape.

So if you have loose abdominal skin and excess fat, and are tired of exercising and dieting without any results, then abdominoplasty may be what you need.

Call us at 602-212-0100 to schedule an appointment with Dr. William M. Jacobsen. He will decide if an abdominoplasty phoenix is the best option for giving you the firm tummy you want and helping you regain your figure post-pregnancy.

What Is Abdominoplasty?

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the body’s midsection to give you a slimmer and smoother abdomen.

It is currently the only effective treatment option for restoring loose or separated abdominal muscles to their original position. Many times, the stretched musculature of abdominal muscles lead to a protruding abdomen, despite following a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

A protruding belly is especially common in women who have undergone multiple pregnancies. The uterus expands during pregnancy and reaches a point where exercise won’t help it return to its original shape.

Weight gain, with consequent massive weight loss of 100 pounds and more, can also stretch and weaken the abdominal wall. This can also lead to stubborn fat pockets, which unfortunately don’t respond to dieting and exercise.

So while abdominoplasty helps give a smooth abdomen, each patient is unique. Your doctor customizes the ideal treatment plan for you based on the extent of excess skin present, the amount of midsection fat, and your future goals and outcomes.

Your doctor will then decide if you need a full or partial tummy tuck or if you should combine the surgery with liposuction for the best results and outcome.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

There are multiple benefits associated with a tummy tuck, which is why it’s such a popular weight loss complementary procedure. The significant benefits are that an abdominoplasty:

  1. Gives your body the restoring boost it needs after massive weight loss and pregnancy

  2. Helps improve the tone of the loose excess skin developed after massive weight loss and pregnancy

  3. Helps restore weakened and separated abdominal muscles

  4. Gives you a much smoother and firmer abdomen with tighter stomach muscles

  5. Can camouflage the bulge C-sections cause inside your favorite clothes

  6. Improves the appearance of the stretch marks caused by pregnancy

  7. Eliminates all the loose, hanging skin triggered during pregnancy and weight loss

  8. Can be customized to reflect your unique aesthetic goals

  9. Perfectly complements your weight loss efforts and keeps you motivated to stay healthy

In addition to the physical and exterior benefits, a tummy tuck also offers numerous health benefits like

  • Better control over urinary incontinence
  • Helping with back pain, hernias, bloating, and posture
  • Making workouts so much more effective

Of course, how long you enjoy these benefits depend on your aftercare. You must follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain the looks and benefits an abdominoplasty offers.

Are You A Good Candidate?

Abdominoplasty is not a weight loss surgical procedure.

It is a procedure that complements the weight loss endeavors of people who have reached a stagnant point and can’t lose more weight.

Abdominoplasty also helps move pregnancy stretch marks from above the belly button to the lower part of the abdomen to make them less visible.

However, the surgery is not for everyone.

For example, it is not for women who plan to become pregnant in the future. Or for women who have plans to lose a significant amount of weight after the procedure.

Undergoing significant weight loss before an abdominoplasty is not the only criterion to becoming a candidate for abdominoplasty. Even women with children who dislike excessive extra skin and fat in the stomach region make perfect abdominoplasty candidates.

In short, the best candidates for abdominoplasty are

  • Men and women with significant midsection fat which doesn’t respond to diet or exercise
  • Women who have had multiple pregnancies
  • People who have experienced massive weight loss
  • People experiencing loss of elasticity in the skin and muscles as part of the aging process
  • Those in good overall health
  • Those who have strong abdominal muscles
  • Those who have maintained a stable weight for at least a year

Some other factors which determine if you are the perfect candidate for a tummy tuck include:

  • Your generic health and medical history
  • Your future pregnancy plans
  • Your expectations and understanding of the related risks and complications of a tummy tuck

People with minimal excess fat can resort to other less invasive procedures like a mini tummy tuck or liposuction to remove this fat. During the initial consultation, Dr. Jacobsen will decide on the best body sculpting procedure for you.
