Have you recently gotten in shape or lost some weight, and are frustrated by extra skin around your midsection? Or has your skin simply lost its elasticity due to aging? If your tummy isn’t as flat as you desire, a tummy tuck may be the perfect solution for you. The tummy tuck has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. It’s no wonder, because the results are striking. The plastic surgeons at NuBody Concepts perform tummy tucks on a daily basis, and their track record of helping women and men in the Nashville area gain new confidence with a new look is unsurpassed.
The ideal candidates for a tummy tuck are women and men in relatively good physical shape who are unhappy with an excess of skin or fat in the abdominal area. For instance, you might have lost a significant amount of weight and now have excess skin around your midriff that has nowhere to go. You may simply have lost skin elasticity due to aging, preventing your stomach from looking as flat as can be, even if you have tried diet and exercise. Or you may even have had liposuction, leaving your tummy flat but with excess skin.
Other candidates for a tummy tuck are women who have been through pregnancy and childbirth. They may have difficulty achieving a flat tummy again because the skin and muscles may have stretched beyond their normal location and shape. These women often consider a complete Mommy Makeover, a combination of tummy tuck and breast augmentation. The best way to find out which procedure is best for you is to schedule a personal consultation with us.
A tummy tuck (or Abdominoplasty) is the removal of excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, including the tightening of the abdominal muscles. An incision is made low across the pubic bone and easily hidden within your style of bikini or underwear. You may opt for a regular or mini tummy tuck, depending on your body type and aesthetic goals. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions below to learn more.
If you are uncomfortable with the idea of surgery, a lesser-invasive procedure to reduce fat from your abdomen is our NuBody Liposuction. It is performed without general anesthesia using local or IV sedation, requires no stitches, and has a much faster recovery.
