Can A Tummy Tuck Help Reduce Your Beer Belly?

Featured Image

Even if you're not a drinker, you may still feel like you've got the classic "beer belly" – commonly characterized by stubborn lower abdominal fat and loose skin that seem to linger despite consistent exercise and healthy eating. Even patients who are relatively fit and thin elsewhere often struggle with belly fat and hanging skin, which can be due to genetics, weight loss, hormones, age, and other factors that may be unavoidable. If you are among the countless men and women who are frustrated by bulging fat and skin rolls in your midsection, our caring team at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics, including Oklahoma City board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan, is here to help. Discover how 3D abdominoplasty — also known as a full tummy tuck or celebrity tummy tuck — can help slim and smooth your abdominal contours and beyond.

What can I do to get rid of my beer belly?

One of the most effective ways to lose belly fat will differ from person to person based on a number of variables, some of the most important of which include age, amount of excess fat, cause of stubborn fat, and others. Depending on the nature of your concerns — meaning whether you have stubborn fat, loose skin, or both —and other factors, you may have success in losing weight in your abdomen through dietary modifications, increased activity levels, and other at-home methods. When these approaches fail, however, it may be time to consider your options for cosmetic body contouring. While nonsurgical body contouring is certainly a solution for some patients, others may benefit most from abdominoplasty, which can be used to achieve a more complete and dramatic transformation.

How does a tummy tuck reduce my waist size?

Each tummy tuck surgery at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics is customized to meet the individual anatomic needs, goals, and other unique factors of the patient. In many cases, Dr. Sawan may recommend a 3D tummy tuck, which addresses stubborn fat, loose skin, and other cosmetic concerns on the abdomen, in addition to tackling aesthetic problems involving the flanks and lower back. This allows the patient to enjoy a well-rounded, proportionate result that can look fantastic from all angles.

During a 3D tummy tuck, Dr. Sawan will create an incision along the lower abdomen. Through this incision, a variety of common concerns can be addressed, improved, or even reversed, including:

  • Loose skin
  • Wrinkled stomach skin
  • Abdominal stretch marks
  • Separated ab muscles (diastasis recti)
  • Hanging stomach skin
  • Stubborn belly fat
  • Belly pooch
  • Stubborn flank fat
  • Lower back rolls

By trimming away loose skin folds, tightening and reinforcing the abdominal muscles, and removing bulging fat in the abdomen, flanks, and lower back, Dr. Sawan helps patients finally get the smooth, slim, sexy physique they dream of — and you can, too.
