Tummy Tuck After Massive Weight Loss

If you have recently undergone a rapid or dramatic weight loss, you should congratulate yourself. Losing weight can be a challenging process, especially when you have many pounds to drop. Unfortunately, this outstanding personal accomplishment can lead to an excessive amount of loose flesh – particularly near your midsection. This excess skin is a relatively typical result of dropping a lot of weight in a short amount of time.    

If this describes your circumstances, you do not need to despair. Dr. Tattelbaum is an expert in body contouring, and he can help you to achieve the look you want. After all, one of your top motives for losing the weight was likely to look and feel better. This can easily be achieved after rapid weight loss with a tummy tuck procedure. In fact, this may be the best time to get a tummy tuck. The following are a few of the top reasons for scheduling this procedure after a quick weight loss.

Getting Past the Final Plateau

When you have a lot of weight to lose, you may discover that shedding the final 30 pounds seems impossible. Your body may try to hold on to those last pounds – no matter how much you exercise and reduce your caloric intake. This is actually an effect triggered by your body’s defense mechanism. The body attempts to hold on to the weight in order to survive, and it stops burning calories the way that it did during your initial weight loss. This extra weight is often found near the abdomen. In such cases, the best option may be to schedule a tummy tuck procedure.

Looking Great   

If you’ve lost weight quickly and still don’t feel appealing in a swimsuit, you may feel frustrated and disappointed. If the whole point of losing the pounds was to look great, you might be dismayed to discover that your body does not reflect the hours of hard work and dieting you recently invested in it. A tummy tuck will help you to get the most from your physique, so you look as attractive as possible.

Feeling Comfortable

Another side effect of losing pounds quickly is that you may experience pain and discomfort from the resultant loose skin. The extra skin around your midsection can actually chafe against your clothing. This can lead to red, irritated skin that may become prone to rashes and even to infections.

If you’ve recently lost weight and are faced with excessive skin around your middle, don’t lose hope. A tummy tuck procedure may be exactly what you need in order to reach your end goal. Dr. Tattlebaum is a talented and experienced professional, and he can implement this popular body contouring procedure beautifully – so that you can look and feel as attractive as you deserve to be.
