There is no place like Houston in the fall. The leaves are beginning to change, and before long we will be raking them into piles that are the very symbol of autumn. The mornings have a chilly crispness to them that offer up a hint of the winter days that are on the way. We are enjoying that special time of year when the days are lovely and cloud free, and the heat and humidity of the summer are but memories. It is hard to believe, but the holiday season is nearly upon us. Jack o’ lanterns and ghosts flourish, soon to be replaced by Christmas decorations, and Thanksgiving dinner is approaching rapidly. Festivities are being planned and parties will abound. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to wear stylish, form fitting clothes to the holiday parties and gatherings? Rather than hiding that sagging tummy under baggy clothes that accentuates rather than hides? Now is the perfect time to consider a tummy tuck procedure. You can enjoy a flatter, firmer tummy and show it off on New Year’s Eve.
If you have been struggling to win your pre baby figure back, or if you have recently lost a significant amount of weight, the skin in your abdominal area may have been stretched out, and not reverted after the weight loss or childbirth. If your tummy skin is drooping or you have that post baby “pooch”, then you are a probably a good candidate for the tummy tuck procedure. If you are in reasonably good health, and don’t have any serious conditions like diabetes or heart disease and you would like to explore the possibility of a tummy tuck in time for the holidays, you should consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in the tummy tuck procedure.
There are two types of tummy tuck procedures, the full tummy tuck and the mini-tummy tuck. The full tummy tuck repairs the stomach muscles and skin from below the breasts to the lower tummy. The mini-tummy tuck repairs the area between the belly button and the pubic bone. The incisions from both types are made from hip to hip, below the panty line.
