All kinds of people have concerns about their midsection so all kinds of people, from all genders and walks of life, get tummy tucks. As people age, skin may get loose and fat can accumulate in tough areas that will not improve with any amount of dieting and exercise. You probably have already noticed that the abdominal/tummy area is one of the places where excess skin and fatty tissue can accumulate on a great many of us, and few of us like it.
Just about anyone can suffer from this issue but some of us are more likely to suffer than others. We see many moms whose stomach muscles have gotten weak after C-sections or who have lost an unusually large amount of weight following their pregnancy. Tummy tucks, abdominoplasty to us doctors, are also often obtained by athletes and others who have had other surgeries that can weaken stomach muscles. Another group we see often are formerly obese weight loss patients. People who have lost large amounts of weight in their abdominal area following bariatric surgery are often left with large folds of loose skin which can only be dealt with through surgery. Tummy tucks get rid of excess skin, tighten muscles, and typically lead to dramatic improvements in the feeling and appearance of the abdominal area.
