No matter what the reason is that you have accumulated unwanted, excess fat and skin in the abdominal area, at MP Plastic Surgery Center, I have a solution that gets rid of it once and for all. Many tummy tuck patients whose genetics, and other uncontrollable factors play a role in where their bodies store fat. Depending on your situation, a tummy tuck could be a viable option for eliminating the extra fat and skin. This is especially true if you already have a good diet and exercise routine but just can’t seem to get rid of the stubborn deposits of abdominal fat. Here are some of the main reasons why my patients have excess fat and skin in their abdominal areas.
One thing that causes both men and women to have an excessive amount of abdominal fat and skin is due solely to their unhealthy lifestyle choices. Having poor eating habits can allow fat to accumulate in the abdominal area. Eating refined carbohydrates, saturated fats and other foods high in total fat over time will inevitably start sticking. The good news is developing better eating habits is within reach, but is often easier said than done.
Hormone changes happen throughout your life. Sometimes these changes can lead to excess fat storage in areas that you don’t want it to be. My patients shouldn’t stress over this, since getting your abdominal area back to normal is easy to achieve with a tummy tuck.
Speaking of stress, experiencing high-stress levels over an extended period of time can also cause fat accumulation that will eventually require a tummy tuck. Stress not only affects hormones, but it can also lead to overeating and extensive snacking throughout the day. It’s impossible to prevent stress completely, but limiting it as much as possible will go a long way in aiding your efforts to lose protruding belly fat and excess skin.
Age and Genes
These are two factors no patient can control because we are all going to get older and we certainly can’t control the genes we are born with. However, through procedures like a tummy tuck, I can tighten up your physical features and minimize any undesirable results of aging and genes.
Women who have had children are often left with extra, flabby skin because their belly has had to expand rapidly in less than a year. Pregnancy also demands that mothers-to-be consume more calories than they would normally, causing them to put on weight in their abdomen.
While these are the factors that cause excess fat and skin to protrude in the abdominal area, it doesn’t mean they are permanent. A combination of healthy living habits and getting a tummy tuck can tighten up your body to your liking.
