You could spend years battling belly fat with diet and exercise alone, but you do have other options if you want immediate results. The cosmetic procedure known as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a long-term solution for losing inches around your waistline and may be just what you need to achieve a slim and attractive silhouette.

While a tummy tuck is considered to be the ‘ultimate’ solution for excess fat on the abdominal area, it’s also one of the riskiest and most painful fat removal procedures.

If you’ve been thinking about getting a tummy tuck and are of child-bearing age, your plastic surgeon might recommend that you postpone your surgery until after your final pregnancy. Many women who have recently had children want to get a tummy tuck to get back their flat stomach and tight abs. Pregnancy usually stretches out the skin and can also break down the abdominal wall – a situation that doesn’t repair itself on its own. Only a surgeon can go in and tighten loose muscles and get rid of excess skin. Tummy tucks can be very effective for this very process, but should be deferred until the last pregnancy or you might have to get another procedure.

If you can’t seem to lose that belly bulge with diet and exercise, or you have a small “pooch” after having children, you may have thought about getting a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is plastic surgery procedure that involves removing body fat and realigning the tissues around the abdomen to create a flat, streamlined appearance. However, there may be another option for men and women who want to achieve that coveted silhouette without surgery. Reaction by Viora is a radio-frequency, cellulite reduction and skin tightening device that can tighten and sculpt the tissue in the abdominal area. This innovative treatment may be an alternative to tummy tuck surgery in some people.

If you’ve had a baby recently, have lost a lot of weight or you naturally have a small “pouch” on your lower stomach, you may have considered a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck procedure, otherwise known as an abdominoplasty, removes excess body fat around your waist and stomach, and can smooth out and tighten the tissues to create a flat, sculpted look. The procedure can give you the coveted six-pack and also pare down several inches, but it can also be very painful and involves a long healing process.

If you’ve always found it hard to lose belly fat and maintain a six-pack, the tummy tuck procedure may help you achieve your ideal figure. This popular procedure removes body fat and excess skin around the stomach and waistline to create a slim, flat, and toned look. Many women get this procedure after having a baby, but it can also be performed on men and women who just want to slim down the midsection and achieve a streamlined look.
