For many patients, a tummy tuck can restore confidence in their physical appearance, and even enhance their health by removing fatty deposits from the body.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure to remove fat and loose skin from the abdomen and tighten the underlying muscles of the abdominal wall. For North Georgia residents, this month may be an ideal time to have the procedure done. Perimeter Plastic Surgery, an Atlanta plastic surgery practice with offices in Atlanta and Fayetteville, is offering a “Fall Fab Abs” special which will run through September: $500 off a tummy tuck.
“Pregnancies, extreme weight loss, gravity and aging can lead to undesired sagging and a ‘bulge’ around the tummy and midsection,” explains Mark Deutsch, MD, a board certified plastic surgeon and medical director of Perimeter Plastic Surgery. “A tummy tuck can dramatically improve the shape of the abdomen and slim down the waist.”
Ideal candidates for a tummy tuck are those who are at a healthy weight and in good overall health, but are unable to firm up their figures through exercise. Patients who need to lose a considerable amount of weight or may be considering a future pregnancy are encouraged to delay the procedure until they’re at a healthy weight and finished having children.
“The primary goal of this surgery is not one of weight loss, but instead to improve shape and contour,” Dr. Deutsch says. “Even though the amount of fat and skin removed can be dramatic, there is not a significant amount of weight loss from a tummy tuck.” The average weight loss with Dr. Deutsch’s patients is 3 to 5 pounds.
Dr. Deutsch performs both full tummy tucks, in which extra fatty tissue and loose skin are removed throughout the upper and lower abdomen, and mini tummy tucks, which correct issues only in the lower abdomen (below the belly button).
“With both the full and mini tummy tucks, the results are often immediate and dramatic,” Dr. Deutsch says. “For many patients, a tummy tuck can restore confidence in their physical appearance, and even enhance their health by removing fatty deposits from the body. Now that summer is over and school has started, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of this special offer.” To learn more, please visit http://perimeterplasticsurgery.com/.
