Healthy weight loss can be great for your health, self-esteem, and appearance. But for some, shedding pounds quickly can lead to an excess of loose skin. Pregnancy and child birth can also lead to weakened abdominal muscles and loose abdominal skin. The most popular surgical option for dealing with the issues of excess skin from quick weight loss is an abodminoplasty, or a tummy tuck. How much tummy tuck?
What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. In other words, a tummy tuck allows the rest of your body to catch up with your rapid weight loss. When an overweight individual loses a lot of weight–50 pounds or more–sometimes they reach their healthy weight, but are still not satisfied with their body. The sagging skin can still be detrimental to the individual’s self-esteem.
For an individual who has lost a great deal of weight, getting a tummy tuck is often the last step of obtaining the slim figure that he or she feels comfortable in. If you think that a tummy tuck may be right for you, contact the professionals at Beleza Medical Spa today.
How Much Tummy Tuck?
The tummy tuck cost depends on several factors. The first is the amount of skin and abdominal muscle looseness that needs to be repaired. Some patients have a small amount of excess skin that needs to be removed, while other can have a large amount. Some patients have a great deal of stretch marks that require more skin removal. The factors determine the operative time and hence the tummy tuck cost is different for every patient. Other tummy tuck price factors include the facility fee, anesthesia fee and the surgeon’s fee.
