Advantages of a Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck, is beneficial if you have stretched, hanging skin around your midriff. A tummy tuck:

  • Removes excess fat
  • Removes sagging skin
  • Tightens stretched abdominal muscles

A tummy tuck may also eliminate stretch marks if they are located on the skin to be removed. A tummy tuck is often included in a mommy makeover because it removes loose skin and tightens the muscles stretched by pregnancy.

Fat and skin hanging from your body can feel devastating. This stretched skin is unlikely to regain elasticity, and diet and exercise will not eliminate it. A tummy tuck lets you achieve the midriff appearance you want, rejuvenating the contour of your body and improving overall body shape.

A major advantage to a tummy tuck is the longevity of results. Unless you gain back a significant amount of weight, your tummy should remain flatter and tighter for many years. A tummy tuck cannot stop how aging and weight-gain affects your body, but it can provide long-term results if you pursue a healthy lifestyle.

New Study Finds BOTOX® Cosmetic May Rejuvenate Skin

Washington DC BOTOX Cosmetic Surgeon - Chevy Chase, MDNew research findings show that BOTOX® Cosmetic injections may have added rejuvenation benefits for your skin. While BOTOX® Cosmetic is used as primarily an anti-aging treatment, researchers are studying other beneficial effects, including whether the injectable may actually help promote the production of elastin and collagen, proteins that keep your skin firm.

As you age, repeated facial expressions eventually lead to wrinkles. Also with age, your skin’s levels of elastin and collagen decline. BOTOX® Cosmetic can have an antioxidant effect for your skin, giving it time to reproduce those elastin and collagen proteins, all the while decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.

At Chevy Chase Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide range of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures including BOTOX® Cosmetic to address the following:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • “Frown lines” between the eyebrows
  • Lines in your nasolabial folds
