4 Reasons That You May be Thinking Of Having a Tummy Tuck

Posted on Jun 04,2019 By Y. Anthony Nakamura

At Accent On You, we tailor each patient’s procedures to their unique needs, and the tummy tuck – also known as an abdominoplasty – is a particularly customizable procedure. These are some of the most common reasons for talking about tummy tucks. Even with exercise and a good diet, many women are unable to achieve the flat tummy they desire. This is a very common scenario and the one or more of the following factors may contribute to this challenge:

  1. The aging process itself. A slowing metabolism and the decreased ability to burn off fat may lead to accumulation in the abdominal area. In addition, there’s a loss of skin elasticity that comes with aging.
  2. Genetic distribution of fat. Some men and women are prone to storing fat in the abdominal area.
  3. Pregnancy. Because of the stretching and separation of the abdominal muscles, many women cannot regain a tight abdomen after childbirth. Many women also have stretch marks that are a result of pregnancy.
  4. Weight loss. Even after people have lost a significant amount of weight, they still may have loose and draping skin.

These are all common factors that may lead patients to a tummy tuck procedure, but it’s important to remember that every patient’s body is different and unique.
