Abdominoplasty — Tummy Tuck Dayton Fat Deposits

Published on February 8, 2016

Pregnancy, genetics and getting older can all lead to a depletion of skin elasticity. Eventually, this turns into sagging loose skin. This can be a major issue for women, especially around the abdomen. Patients seeking to surgically tighten the sagging skin around their stomach may be good candidates for an abdominoplasty procedure.

This surgery can also aid in eliminating some stubborn fat deposits around the mid-section. Most patients seeking abdominoplasty have excess fat on the outside of the muscle layer, and this fat can be removed during the procedure.

The only solution for fat inside the abdomen is weight loss. If most of the adipose tissue, or fat, is inside the abdomen, there will not be as much correction with the abdominoplasty.

To learn more about what an abdominoplasty can do for you, contact our skilled surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Dayton to set up an appointment.
