As you age it can be hard to keep the fit and trim figure of your youth. As early as our mid-20s our metabolism begins to slow and shortly thereafter our skin begins to lose its natural elasticity which keeps it firm and tight against our bodies. This can be especially true if you’re a woman who’s had children, as you may see even greater changes in your midsection because of pregnancy weight gained and lost, leaving behind stubborn pockets of fat and loose skin.
Fortunately, at North Texas Plastic Surgery, our Harvard-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sacha Obaid understands how frustrating it can be for those who struggle with loose skin and pockets of fat on the abdomen that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. That’s why he offers multiple tummy tuck options to help contour your body and give you the toned figure you desire.
While a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can help trim your midsection, it’s important to understand that it’s not a weight-loss solution. If you’re overweight, it’s recommended that you begin a weight loss regime to get to a healthy weight before considering a tummy tuck. Tummy tucks are ideal for those who are healthy, generally physically fit, and at a stable weight. A tummy tuck can help address issues such as:
- Excess abdominal skin from losing weight or pregnancy
- Removing small pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise
- Tightening abdominal muscles
As mentioned above, we offer multiple tummy tuck options at North Texas Plastic Surgery. That’s because we understand everyone is different and has specific needs that may vary from another individual. At our office, we also aim to be competitive with our techniques as Dr. Obaid applies his extensive experience to advanced methods of treatment with state-of-the-art equipment and a highly-trained staff you can trust that you’re receiving a safe and effective treatment to address your aesthetic concerns.
At our office, we offer these tummy tuck options:
- Standard tummy tuck: This procedure addresses the skin, fat, and muscles above and below your belly button.
- Mini tummy tuck: Our mini tummy tuck is ideal for those who only need to address issues on their lower abdomen, below the belly button.
- “Around the world” tummy tuck: Also called an extended abdominoplasty or belt lipectomy, this procedure not only addresses your entire abdomen but also your sides and back as well.
We also offer multiple financing options to help with the cost of these procedures. During your initial consultation with Dr. Obaid, he’ll evaluate your candidacy and help you determine the best procedure to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Our entire staff at North Texas Plastic Surgery will help you through each step of the process so that you can feel comfortable knowing your needs have been met.
