Transform Your Waistline at Savannah Plastic Surgery

|

tummy tuckFor some people, extra fat or loose skin around the stomach is extremely hard to lose, even with physical activity and a healthy lifestyle. That's where Savannah Plastic Surgery can help through a procedure called abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.

The best candidates for a tummy tuck are men and women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won't respond to diet or exercise. The procedure can be particularly helpful to women who want to reverse the effect of pregnancy on the abdominal muscles and skin.

"The ideal candidate is any healthy person who is unhappy with his or her waistline and can be helped with a tummy tuck," says Dr. Scott Vann of Savannah Plastic Surgery. "Most commonly, we treat women who have finished having children and have tummies that became stretched during pregnancy."

How a Tummy Tuck Works

"Sometimes, liposuction may compliment the procedure for the best result," says Dr. Vann. "Liposuction is especially helpful if the patient has excess fat on the back that needs to be removed to get the best waist in the front and back."

The procedure has evolved over the past years, making recovery time shorter and results even better. Patients typically require about 2 weeks to recover. After that, most can return to work.

Dr. Vann, who specializes in tummy tucks, says he enjoys seeing patients react positively to their new shape. "I feel a tummy tuck is the most transforming procedure I can do in body sculpting," he says. Generally, he is able to restore the classic hourglass shape many of his female patients desire. "I feel my patients have a huge improvement when it comes to self-image and more confidence after a tummy tuck."
