A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes extra skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens weakened or separated muscles. This results in a firmer and thinner looking abdomen.
Many of us try to tone and shape our abdomen through exercise and diet, oftentimes to no avail. Dr. Economou, will remove any excess abdominal tissue and tighten your muscles to a more desirable slimmer looking profile.
Even people with normal body weights and silhouette could have loose abdominal skin or an abdomen that seems distended. The most common causes of this include pregnancy, aging, prior operations, changes in body weight and genes.
If you suffer from stretched, loose abdominal skin, weak muscles with protruding stomach and excess fat around the abdomen you may consider having a tummy tuck i.e. abdominoplasty in Limassol by Dr Economou.
Depending on the amount of fat, shape of the abdomen, absence of skin looseness, and strength of the muscles underneath the skin; liposuction, a less invasive procedure, maybe a more suitable procedure for you.
Men and women alike seek to tone and shape their abdomen; in some cases even the most rigorous excursive and diet regimes fail to get rid of that extra stubborn abdominal fat or the extra loose skin. In such cases having an abdominoplasty in Limassol might be the only solution for you.
An abdominoplasty can significantly improve one’s self-confidence where first impressions can be very meaningful. Additionally, you will finally look your best for the beach this summer!
Firstly patients that would benefit the most from a tummy tuck surgery in Limassol by Dr. Economou are those with moderate to severe abdominal skin laxity plus localized fat, resistant to exercise and diet with a stable overall weight. Having said that patients with no skin relaxation with localized fat may benefit from liposuction alone.
Secondly, as with any operation, it is important that, you are doing this for yourself. Therefore you should not do it to please someone else or to meet up to his or her expectations.
As a result, a good candidate for most aesthetic procedures is a person that is in good general health, with no significant medical history. Furthermore, ideally these patients should be non-smokers, or willing to quit prior to surgery.
In addition they should be in a good and stable mental state. Without any recent major changes in their personal life, that could affect their decision-making abilities. It is also helpful to have supportive social and family environments. Finally have a clear and realistic understanding that surgery can offer improvements to ones appearance and not perfection
