What to expect from abdominoplasty
After a successful abdominoplasty in Las Vegas, you can expect to see a flatter, firmer belly. A tummy tuck is not a long-term weight loss solution and will be most effective for patients who have maintained a healthy weight for some time, but still have a disproportionately protruding or sagging lower belly. After working hard to attain and maintain a healthy weight, it is normal to still have some frustrations with the body’s overall shape. Pregnancy and aging may also cause a protruding belly that does not respond to diet or exercise.
Additionally, those who have lost a significant amount of weight may be left with excess, sagging skin and fat pockets that mar their incredible accomplishment.
If your belly is causing you distress, a tummy tuck may provide a lasting solution. Although a tummy tuck is not intended to remove stretch marks, if they are located on the excess skin that is being removed during surgery, they may be excised.
Patients in the Las Vegas area can share their goals and discuss realistic expectations of abdominoplasty in consultation with Dr. Engineer. He will make every effort to ensure you understand the procedure and help you make decisions about the best possible surgical plan for your unique objectives.
