Tummy tucks are becoming more and more popular in Houston, Texas. Some women find that no matter how hard they diet and exercise, they can’t get their stomach as flat as they would like. Sometimes this is due to having children, getting older or both. This popular surgery will remove any excess fat or skin on your tummy, and can also restore weakened or separated muscles in your stomach, making you look slimmer. There are several types of tummy tucks, but all basically accomplish the same objective by removing skin and fat. Sometimes your belly button gets moved! Your surgeon can make sure your scar can be hidden by your bikini.
The surgery usually takes between two to five hours, with a two day recovery period (meaning you will be up and around, but probably should not return to work for a week). Of course, all this will vary depending on what kind of shape you are in, how large your stomach is, your overall health, and other factors. A tummy tuck will give you a flatter stomach and slimmer waist, but you will have to maintain it with diet and exercise. If you think you might be a good tummy tuck candidate, below are my top picks for plastic surgeons that perform tummy tucks in Houston, Texas.
Tummy tucks are usually the last resort when you find that things are not working out with exercise and diet, but it only covers your stomach and is not your natural look, which will make you look artificial and phoney. But since plastic surgery marketing is an extremely crowded space and costs a lot of money, people have no choice but to opt for tucks to provide a certain relief to their protruding paunch.
