Losing weight is a long haul but it is best for your long-term health. By reducing your body mass index into the normal range, you have decreased your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is recommended for patients who have lost weight and are otherwise healthy. It works by removing excess skin around your upper body, enhancing the shape and silhouette of your new-and-improved physique. Abdominoplasty surgery is performed by lifting the skin of the abdomen in order to remove the excess fatty tissue and retighten abdominal muscles. The doctor then pulls the skin tight, draping it over the newly-toned abdomen and removing excess. Often, a full abdominoplasty requires the recreation of the naval as it will need to be moved as excess skin is relocated. See for yourself the amazing results in these pictures of patients before and after abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) surgery with Dr. Oldham.
