Cosmetic surgery is more and more common these days. People throng to these clinics in an effort to “fix” their bodies.’ Of course, you’d assume that people would recoil at the thought of having a scalpel inserted into their skin, but hey, to each his own, right? You are aware that a protruding belly doesn’t exactly qualify as being “beautiful.”‘ And as might be expected from intelligent humans, a solution to this issue was discovered. An innovative procedure called an abdominoplasty has been developed by cosmetic surgeons.
What is It?
Tucking the stomach in is what an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, more commonly known as does. The plastic surgeons have devised a method that allows us to avoid having to hold our breath while trying to tuck our stomachs in. In order to tighten the muscles and fascia, the excess skin and fat from the middle to lower abdomen must be removed for a permanent solution.
However, since this operation results in a permanent scar, it’s not a quick path to beauty. The extent of your condition or the amount of your body that needed to be fixed will determine the size of this scar. Still, most people are unaffected by the thought of the scar. Because a protruding stomach is as noticeable as Barney the Dinosaur seated next to members of the US Congress, scars are much easier to conceal.
Who Needs It?
Additionally, patients with sagging skin or loose tissues favor abdominoplasty surgery. Significant weight loss or pregnancy are the usual causes of these loose tissues. Some people simply can’t stand the unsightly appearance of having sagging skin because it takes some time for all of the skin to retract into its original taut state. Additionally, there are instances where the skin has been so stretched that it has lost its elasticity. Abdominoplasty is typically the only option in these situations because the sagging skin won’t go back to its original position.
There are risks associated with surgery as with any medical procedure. There is always a chance of getting infected and a chance that the surgery will go wrong. People are not discouraged by this, though. External beauty isn’t actually as shallow as people think, you see. A person’s sense of self-worth is influenced by their appearance, which helps the person become more adjusted. And if using a scalpel to stab holes in your body is the only way to do it, so be it.
