We all do it, whether it’s on social media or in magazines themselves, we look at other people’s flawless bodies and fantasize that our bodies were that toned, or tan, or perfect. And although we’d be fools not to acknowledge that the majority of the photos we see are in fact photoshopped, it’s still hard not to compare your body to somebody else’s. If you are like most women and you struggle with trying to get that perfectly toned tummy that would be worth showing off in the Victoria Secret catalog, you are not alone. Whether you lost all of the elasticity in the skin around your stomach due to babies or you simply have just always been a little bit curvier around the middle, it might be time to consider getting an abdominoplasty.
Aren’t Tummy Tucks for the Obese?
It used to be that liposuction and tummy tucks were viewed by the public as a “cure all” weight loss procedure specifically targeted towards the obese. However, that is far from the truth. In fact, surgeries like liposuction and tummy tucks aren’t meant for the obese at all— they are meant to help individuals target specific areas in which they can’t seem to lose the weight themselves, but these procedures definitely aren’t a cure-all to weight loss. In fact, the perfect candidate for a tummy tuck procedure would be an individual who just can’t seem to get rid of the extra fat around their middle area, no matter how hard they try.
Will It Be Too Obvious?
If you have been in front of close family and friends for years while wearing a bikini, then they will definitely be able to see the results of your tummy tuck procedure. However, if you are worried about mere strangers at the beach or pool being able to tell, it’s not likely. The great thing about tummy tucks is that they are designed to remove both the excess fat from your abdominal area and tighten the skin around your middle at the same time— leaving you with a smooth and fairly flat stomach, which could easily look like the girl’s next door.
