Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck Methods
A traditional tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat and tightens stomach muscles to create a smoother and firmer abdominal profile. This common procedure aims at refining the midsection when the body does not respond to conventional weight loss methods.
However, for those patients who are looking to improve their body contours, but would prefer not to undergo surgery, there are several alternatives available. At Americas Cosmetic Surgery Centers, we offer non-surgical methods that are less invasive and can effectively produce the results of a more toned abdominal appearance.
Am I a Candidate for Tummy Tuck Alternatives?
The specific non-surgical method will depend on the condition of the midsection, the desired goal of patient, and the evaluation of the cosmetic surgeon. Skin-tightening procedures may also work to improve the firmness of the abdominal skin. In general, good candidates for tummy tuck alternatives are patients who meet the following criteria:
- Have mild amounts of excess belly fat due to childbirth, weight loss, or age
- Would prefer to avoid surgery
- Are in good health
- Are close to your ideal weight
The Benefits of Non-Surgical Approaches
For many patients, the main benefit of these tummy tuck alternatives is the fact that they don’t require a major operation to improve the abdominal appearance. In addition, the non-invasive nature of these methods often presents a near immediate recovery time. These body contouring procedures are also often more cost-effective than traditional surgical approaches.
