08 Jun 2017 Saying Goodbye To Your Post Pregnancy Belly
If you are struggling with the “ baby belly” that won’t go away, it may be time to look into a tummy tuck or maybe even the non-surgical Exilis procedure. Yes, there are choices out there, and there’s sure to be one that you feel is right for you.
A tummy tuck procedure actually comes in a few shapes and sizes. It is definitely not a one size fits all procedure. Depending on your issues and concerns, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss the options. The choices:
Full Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
In a full tummy tuck, your surgeon will cut your abdomen from hipbone to hipbone and then shape the skin, tissue, and muscle as needed. The surgery will involve moving your belly button, and you may need drainage tubes under your skin for a few days.
A mini tummy tuck procedure is often done on people when the abdominal fat deposits are limited to the area below the navel, leaving the belly button intact. Fat is removed below the navel and regional muscles are tightened.
Non-Surgical Belly Tightening Options
Exilis skin tightening is a relatively new procedure that works by stimulating collagen production within the skin. The specific radio frequencies unravel the collagen fibers, causing fibroblasts to start producing more of this protein. This can have a skin tightening effect in the long term, by building up the fiber network in the skin.
Exilis is also used for the purposes of belly fat reduction. By delivering the radiofrequency deeper into the tissues, the Exilis technology can “melt away” the fat. The actual process works by using energy to destroy the fat cells, which are then broken down and removed from the treatment area by the body’s natural processes.
