Choosing to have plastic surgery is a personal decision that requires time and deep reflection. Each person who has a tummy tuck has a unique background and objectives that motivate them to contact a plastic surgeon. Whatever your reasons for seeking a tummy tuck, it is important to consider the way that they may (or may not) align with a healthy mindset. Plastic surgery is an investment that you want to make for the right reasons. Here, we discuss a few examples.
Why Have a Tummy Tuck?
You want to restore your body to a previous shape.
Many people who have lost a significant amount of weight notice that their abdominal area just won’t tighten up the way they’d like. The issue could be excess skin or the loosening or separation of the abdominal muscle. In either situation, the problem could make a person feel less connected to their body. A tummy tuck could be the ideal solution to the laxity that has taken the body away from one’s image of themselves.
You want to feel more confident in your skin.
Regardless of what has caused the midsection to become loose and saggy, you may wish to undergo a tummy tuck so you can feel like your best self. It is no secret that people generally feel more confident when they like the way they look. A tummy tuck can facilitate this by getting your abdomen to match the vision you have for yourself. This can be a tricky area for some patients. It is essential to undergo a tummy tuck, or any other plastic surgery, because you want to feel more like yourself, not to meet someone else’s model of the ideal body.
You want to augment the work you’ve put into achieving your ideal weight and fitness.
A tummy tuck can set you up for years of beautiful contours. The key is that you’ll enjoy the best results if you’ve already started the hard work of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A tummy tuck won’t do much for long if lifestyle habits do not support a stable weight and muscle tone.
The primary reason many people get a tummy tuck is that they want to improve their quality of life. For more information regarding this procedure, contact our Reno office at (775) 826-4477 for a consultation with Dr. Dahan.
