For many patients, it is essential that they feel comfortable in their bodies. Wearing what you want, and wearing clothing that flatters your appearance, can be difficult when dealing with excess fat in the midsection. While losing weight through traditional methods such as exercise and changes to diet are often effective, there are times when fat and loose skin in a targeted area cannot be improved. At this point, Dr. Patrick C. Obasi and his team at Noble Cosmetic Surgery may recommend that patients consider the advantages of treatments such as cosmetic surgery. One of the finest tummy tuck doctors in the Dallas, Texas community, Dr. Obasi, can provide this treatment for those ready to obtain a flatter, firmer abdomen.
What is a tummy tuck?
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed by our team to help remove unwanted, stubborn fat that resides in the midsection and is often resistant to changes through diet and exercise. The tummy is a typical problem area for both men and women and continues to be an area of contention for most. With the tummy tuck procedure, excess fat in the stomach area is suctioned out with a device called a cannula, and then excess skin is removed and sutured. The procedure provides a smaller midsection that might have been unresponsive to the hours spent at the gym and the nutritional changes patients have made to achieve results without surgery.
Who is a suitable candidate for the tummy tuck procedure?
Our doctor in the Dallas, Texas area encourages men and women who are having difficulty addressing unwanted fat in the midsection to consider the benefits of this surgical treatment. Patients must understand that it is not a weight loss surgery but instead a body contouring procedure. The best patients are adults in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding what this procedure can achieve for their needs.
