Been thinking about getting a tummy tuck? Find out if you are the ideal candidate for treatment.
A tummy tuck has given countless patients dealing with stomach fat the ability to finally have the more shapely and contoured body they’ve always wanted. While there are ads all around us touting the next miracle fat-shedding pill or incredible four-minute fat-burning workout, for many people dealing with stubborn fat, exercise and diet just aren’t enough. So find out if it’s time you talked to our plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis, serving Hinsdale, Naperville, Oak Brook, and Elmhurst, IL, about abdominoplasty.
What is abdominoplasty?
This cosmetic surgery is a great way to tighten both abdominal muscles and skin in that area. Before getting a tummy tuck, it’s always a good idea to prepare your body for this surgery by eating a healthy, balanced diet and exercising regularly to reduce as much stomach fat as possible.
Who is a good candidate for a tummy tuck?
Ideal candidates for getting a tummy tuck include:
While this is a great way to reduce stomach fat, an abdominoplasty is not ideal for those who are obese. Ideally, a good candidate will be around 25 pounds above their ideal weight. Before choosing to get this treatment it’s important that you evaluate all the pros and cons of treatment to make sure that it is right for you.
Sit down with us one-on-one and ask us for before-and-after photos so you can get a realistic idea of the results you can achieve with an abdominoplasty or whether another cosmetic procedure is better suited for your needs. We are here to help make the decision a bit easier for you.
