With all the talk about weight these days it’s no wonder that both men and women are looking down and trying to figure out how to fight the battle of the bulge. You would be hard pressed to find someone that is NOT concerned about their bodies in today’s society. They continuously promise themselves that they are going to lose the excessive body fat by eating right and getting in shape. Spending time at the gym every month and eating smaller meals throughout the day are all great for everyone’s health overall, and you will definitely see results when you look in the mirror, but you might also still see the stubborn stomach fat that just won’t budge or the excess skin where the fat used to be. The pace at which a man or woman loses weight often makes a snail look fast. Fortunately, people struggling with excess abdominal body fat and loose skin can turn to tummy tuck as the solution to get the beautiful body they have been working so hard for.
Tummy tuck, medically termed abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fat from a man or woman’s midsection. A protruding abdomen stretches the abdominal wall and over time the skin sags and abdominal definition is hidden. Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants evaluates his patients during consultation and offers his years of training and experience to help you get the results you want.
During the procedure, a well hidden incision will be made to access the underlying abdominal structures. Dr. Grigoryants elevates and pulls the skin down to create a tight, flat contour. Excess skin is removed and the abdominal muscles and fascia are tightened.
Why Is It Smarter to Get a Tummy Tuck?
Men and women everywhere resort to extreme diet plans and exercise videos to help trim their bodies, but often times the results they seek simply can’t be accomplished by diet and exercise due to their genetic limitations. Unfortunately many people end up becoming frustrated after months and years of working out and dieting that don’t yield the results they want. This often leads to people “giving up” and “letting go of themselves” simply out of frustration.
Instead of eliminating food or eating unordinary meals that do not provide enough nourishment, people can opt for abdominoplasty for a slimmer and toned abdomen. Several studies have shown that a tummy tuck can really increase the quality of life of the patient. An improvement in mood and self confidence following the procedure leads to a boost in desire to maintain the new body they see in the mirror everyday, leading to a happier, healthier life.
Why Do People Turn to Tummy Tucks?
There are multiple reasons for men and women to go under the knife and achieve what they have been working for. Common reasons for people to get a tummy tuck include:
- Loose skin does not have the ability to shrink with diet and exercise
- Postpartum women want to get their slim shape back
- People feel self-conscious about their excessive flab in the abdomen
- Improve quality of life
- Boost self-confidence and image with a flatter stomach
Will Pregnancy Be Possible After Procedure?
Women are still capable of having children after the procedure. However, the results of the procedure will be affected and the mother’s abdominal section will once again suffer from excessive weight added during pregnancy. Dr. Grigoryants recommends that patients hold off on surgery until the they are certain that they will no longer have anymore children, otherwise the results will be compromised.
Are Results Long Lasting?
After surgery, the patient will initially feel sore, swollen and experience some bruising. These effects will subside and patients will notice that their abdomen is firmer and flatter as they expected. They will feel more comfortable in clothing and the results can be long lasting by implementing a healthy lifestyle. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, unless the patient gains or loses a significant amount of weight or becomes pregnant, the abdomen should remain firmer and flatter for many years. Should the patient see more effects due to aging and gravity, their body contour can be restored again.
Dr. Grigoryants wants his patients to make the smart choice and visit his office in Los Angeles to get the answers they seek in regards to body contouring. Men and women no longer have to struggle to in the battle of the bulge. Trim the fat with a tummy tuck and get that sexy shape you deserve!
