Tummy Tuck Procedure
One of the many beneficial procedures offered by Dr. MacLennan is the tummy tuck. There are many who struggle with issues in different parts of their body, despite being at their ideal weight. This could be excess fat and skin on your tummy that refuses to go away after pregnancy, childbirth or massive weight loss. At times, this may be in combination with loose abdominal muscles as well that make it even more difficult to lose the fat and skin from the abdominal area. If you are also dealing with a tummy that is out of shape and which does not change with diet or exercise, talk to Dr. MacLennan about the tummy tuck procedure.
Who is a good candidate for Tummy Tuck?
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure for those who are in good health and not suffering from any pre-existing medical problems such as diabetes or heart diseases. Dr. MacLennan will evaluate your abdomen to see the extent of the changes before advising you about the results you can achieve with the tummy tuck. Just like any other surgical procedure, there will be initial changes and you will require a recovery time period, so it is important that you are emotionally stable before undergoing the surgery.
You are a good candidate for the tummy tuck if you are at your ideal weight and have an overhanging lower abdomen. Our patients who have had a C-section complaint of stretch marks and a tummy with extra skin that overhangs the C section scar. If this “pooch” is making you feel less confident about your appearance, request a consultation with Dr. MacLennan to know how the tummy tuck can help you get a well contoured waist.
At times, it is best to wait to undergo the tummy tuck procedure so that you can enjoy the results for a long time. If you are planning to have more children in the near future or when you plan to lose more weight, you must wait to get the tummy tuck. This is because your abdomen will once again stretch during pregnancy and weight loss might leave you with excessive skin that will alter the results you get with the tummy tuck.
This makes it important that you discuss your cosmetic and other future goals with Dr. MacLennan during the consultation so that the best treatment can be developed for your specific requirements. Dr. MacLennan also offers different techniques for abdominoplasty like the mini tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, or a Fleur de Lis tummy tuck that may be chosen for you depending on your specific needs and unique cosmetic goals.
