Many people experience an increase in body fat as they grow older. As it develops on the torso the fat deposits can stretch and change the appearance of the overlying skin. At the same time many women experience a change in body composition during pregnancy and after breastfeeding.
Even after losing a significant amount of weight the individual is often left with loose abdominal skin, which can impact their self-image and limit some of their clothing selection. Some people with excess abdominal skin also feel self-conscious in intimate settings.
Here at Club Image in Scottsdale, Arizona, our surgeon Dr. Kirk Moore offers several services that can help address loose abdominal skin. The treatment that is right for you will depend on the amount of skin in the abdominal area and your current body composition as well as your personal goals.
In many of these cases he can perform a tummy tuck procedure to help minimize the excess skin and provide you with a firmer-looking abdomen. Also known as an abdominoplasty, the procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis to excise excess skin and fat from the abdominal wall while also tightening the surrounding tissue and muscle.
Dr. Moore will provide you with any necessary preparation and aftercare instructions to help you heal quickly and without complications.
