Tummy Tuck in DC: Is it right for you?September 24, 2018
Have tireless efforts of diet and exercise failed to deliver the results you want? Consider a tummy tuck procedure in Washington, DC.
Aging, or significant life events such as pregnancy, can change the overall appearance of your figure and leave you with stubborn fat that diet and exercise alone are unable to remove. Perhaps you experienced a significant weight loss but are now left with loose, hanging skin- an adverse effect of an otherwise positive change. A tummy tuck procedure can completely reshape the abdomen.
Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
- Flattened stomach area
- Improved appearance of abdominal muscles
- Slimmed waistline
- Enhanced, youthful appearance of the abdomen
- Tightened stomach muscles
- Reduced appearance of stretch marks
- Removed excess, loose skin
- Reduced waistline, some patients drop several pants sizes
If you live in the Washington DC area, a tummy tuck procedure at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery can completely reshape your abdomen and stomach area, by removing excess skin and fat and allowing you to feel comfortable in your own skin again.
This procedure usually takes between two and four hours, with a recovery time of as little as two weeks and no overnight hospital stay required, though many patients choose to stay overnight for comfort. Ideally, candidates for this procedure are generally in good health, are near their ideal weight, and have realistic expectations for achieving their desired look.
