Tummy Tuck: The Importance of Addressing Abdominal Muscle Separation
When trying to solve a problem, the key to achieving outstanding results is addressing the source of the issue, not just the symptoms. The tummy tuck is an excellent example of this. A tummy tuck involves more than just the removal of excess fat around the midsection. It also involves tightening the abdominal muscles to create a well-contoured and well-defined appearance.
Loose skin and excess fat are the most obvious aesthetic issues that ruin the appearance of your abdominal area, but if your abdominal muscles have become stretched and separated, removing excess skin and fat will not provide the full results you are looking for.
During a tummy tuck, the abdominal muscles are surgically tightened using internal sutures. This ensures that the abdominal area has a tight, toned, and well-contoured appearance.
