The goal of losing weight or getting into shape is great, but what happens to your body after you have reached your goal? For some, skin can bounce back to normal, but for those that have lost a significant amount of weight or have just had a baby may face another issue. The issue is loose skin that is not fat, hanging around the area.
If this skin can be picked up and moved, it can be removed surgically with a procedure called an Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck. This is not the same as losing weight or liposuction and can get rid of the skin permanently.
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a procedure to tighten the abdominal skin and muscles. In short, when you gain and lose weight it abnormally stretches and loosens the abdominal skin. So, no matter how much weight you lose, this extra skin will always be there and surgery will give you real results.
