Top 3 Myths About Tummy Tucks

Robinson9-2

Although it is the top rated procedure when it comes to patient satisfaction, there are still many people who stay away from the tummy tuck because of certain things that they have heard. The truth is, a lot of what we think we know about the tummy tuck is false. Here are the top three misconceptions about the procedure.


Myth #1: If You Eat Right and Exercise, You Won’t Need a Tummy Tuck

Many people think that tummy tucks are meant to help a person lose weight, but that is not what the procedure is designed to do. The tummy tuck is a body contouring treatment that doesn’t help you lose weight, but rather helps to smooth your body’s silhouette and remove unwanted or excess skin and tissue. After major weight loss or pregnancy, skin may often lack the elasticity to tighten up to the new contours of the body. This is an issue that no diet or exercise can help with.

Myth #2: Tummy Tucks are for Women

Abdominoplasty (the official medical term) is just as much designed for men as it is for women. In 2012, over four thousand men had the procedure. While the tummy tuck is more common for women because of pregnancy, it can also help men who have lost a lot of weight by removing the leftover skin, and allowing them to show off their abs.

Myth #3: You Will Liposuction with Your Tummy Tuck

While it is often used to help sculpt the waistline during a tummy tuck, liposuction is not always necessary. The two procedures have proven to be beneficial in shortening recovery time and sometimes avoiding the need for drainage when combined together. If there are areas of fat that you would like to be addressed during your tummy tuck procedure, liposuction can effectively help in the contouring process.
