How Confident Are You With the Looks of Your Tummy?

Although a combination of moderation in eating habits and regular physical activity can help men and women achieve their weight loss goals, it usually cannot provide the body shape improvements that most people want.

The midsection is a common problem area for both male and female patients who seek our body-contouring surgery services. At the Cool Springs Plastic Surgery office, we frequently deal with the following tummy problems:

Excess pockets of abdominal fat
These pockets of fat can be found in areas of the abdomen. For women, they are referred to as bra rolls, muffin tops, and love handles. Men have their spare tires and beer bellies. Liposuction is the procedure of choice for these concerns.

Loose abdominal skin/ stretch marks
Excess skin and stretch marks in the abdominal area are usually the result of overly stretched skin during pregnancy and drastic weight loss. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can remove loose abdominal skin and tighten slack abdominal muscles. For those who want to avoid invasive surgery, laser skin tightening treatments can be employed. Laser treatments work best for stretch marks that are still pink or purple in color.
