Stop Sucking In!

Let’s face it – Arizona is a pretty health conscious place to live. With our beautiful mountains and ideal climate, fit bodies abound and are hard to miss. Healthy food is easy to find, and gyms, parks and hiking trails are packed with those trying to maintain their fitness.

However for some, diet and exercise alone stop working. Sometimes, there are stubborn areas on our bodies that just don’t respond. Luckily, you have options.

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure for removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. A tummy tuck also involves tightening the “six-pack” – the muscles that are often stretched out and bulging in women who have been pregnant. This tightening results in a flatter and tighter tummy. Liposuction is often used in conjunction with this procedure to blend the surrounding areas (flanks, hips and thighs).

What about stretch marks? Typically, a patient with stretch marks will require a tummy tuck rather than liposuction to achieve ideal abdominal re-contouring. Excess skin is removed, and the muscles and skin are pulled taught to flatten both the upper and lower abdomen.

“Everyone has their trouble areas,” says Dr. Brown. “Abdominal rejuvenation surgery can be one of the most rewarding gifts to yourself. Many men and women seek abdominal rejuvenation surgery. If you are staring at those skinny jeans and have lost as much weight as you can we can help you!”

When sit-ups, crunches and that no-carb diet are failing to achieve the look you want, consider tummy tuck surgery.
