Many people who lose weight through diet and exercise find that excess skin deters them from fully enjoying their new bodies. If you’re one of those people, you’re not alone. You may be surprised to learn that a number of people faced with this frustration come to me for a tummy tuck in Louisiana to achieve the flat, toned abdomen they envisioned.
Why Exercise & Diet Don’t Always Work
If your abdominal skin or muscles have experienced repeated or prolonged stretching from pregnancy or weight fluctuations, the tissues may have lost their elasticity. Rapid or massive changes in weight can inhibit the skin’s ability to snap back into shape, and tissues lose their resilience with age.
One alternative to surgery is to continue doing the best you can with a healthy lifestyle and working out. But if lose tissues are excessive, you may never fully flatten that belly. The other option: tighten your abdomen with a tummy tuck. While results vary, a flatter, firmer tummy is guaranteed. And you can still continue the healthy habits – you’ll be healthier and you can maintain your slimmer midsection.
