Have you often wished that there was something you could do about your body shape? Whenever you look in the mirror, are you irritated and upset by the shape of your midsection? Have you tried dieting and working out to no avail? If this describes you, you may be a perfect candidate for a tummy tuck in Colorado. This is a surgical procedure that can totally reshape your midsection and leave you feeling great about yourself once again. Whether you want to get your body back to its youthful proportions or want to repair the damage done to your abdominals, skin and underlying tissues from a pregnancy or prior weight gain, we can help you with this time-tested procedure. Read on to find out if this might be right for you.
Do You Have Loose, Hanging Abdominal Skin?
A tummy tuck in Colorado is mainly done to get rid of loose skin and tissues that are hanging from your lower abdomen over your upper pelvis. This is done for moderate to major problems. You may notice you have a ‘muffin top’ that peeks out over your waistband. However, rather than being unwanted fat, it is simply skin and tissues that have stretched out over time or after pregnancies.
During a tummy tuck, your surgeon will create an opening across your pelvis. He or she will remove the extra tissues from the navel to the pubic bone before carefully sealing the opening. Your belly will look smaller in wake of this process, and the opening will be easily hidden beneath your waistband. The surgery may take anywhere from two to four hours.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
As you can see, the best candidates for tummy tucks in Colorado are those who have extra skin and tissue hanging from their lower abdomens. However, there are a few other points you should know to determine if you are the best candidate. Before surgery, you should be generally healthy and should not have chronic illnesses that could hamper the healing process. You should also be close to your goal weight and not obese as this is not a weight loss procedure. Finally, you should be done having children because future pregnancies will re-stretch your skin. It also helps to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can accomplish.
