Can I Tighten My Loose Abdominal Skin Without Surgery?
Every year hundreds of men and women in Omaha decide they are done dealing with the loose or sagging skin around their abdomen, so they visit with Dr. Ayoub to discuss their options for getting rid of it. Having served the area for over 20 years, Dr. Ayoub and his staff are known as one of the best practices to visit for the cosmetic needs of local residents. He was even recently voted as one of Omaha Magazine’s “Best of Omaha” for 2018! But sometimes, Dr. Ayoub’s patients will want to know whether or not they should have abdominoplasty to remove their excess skin, or if there are other non-surgical solutions to consider. Well, that is exactly what we will discuss in this blog, so keep reading to learn more.
In most cases, the best way to tighten loose abdominal skin is through an abdominoplasty procedure. More commonly known as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed on men and women in the Omaha area who have excess skin on their abdomen that is sagging or drooping. This extra skin is most commonly the result of pregnancy, weight loss, genetics, or age. The truth of the matter is, while there are non-invasive procedures we perform in our office for this condition, the best and most long-lasting solution is abdominoplasty. This is because extra skin cannot be lost through diet and exercise, and once Dr. Ayoub is able to remove it, it is gone for good.
During an abdominoplasty, Dr. Ayoub will create an incision from hip to hip across your abdomen. Though this incision is long, it provides the access Dr. Ayoub need to remove excess skin and tighten loose abdominal muscles if necessary. And not to worry – the incision will be hidden well by your underwear, so no one will notice that you’ve had work done, even when you are rocking your two-piece at the beach.
Non-Invasive Options To Tighten Abdominal Skin
For residents who have minor skin laxity, choosing a noninvasive procedure may be better than an abdominoplasty. However, most often these options are best for younger patients who have resilient skin and who might want to wait to undergo an abdominoplasty until later in life. There are some benefits of having non-surgical skin tightening procedures done at Westfield Plastic Surgery, such as:
- There are no scars
- Can provide a lifting effect
- No downtime
- Low risk of side effects
- Short procedures
On the other hand, non-surgical solutions carry many limitations with them as well:
- Temporary results
- Results take weeks or months to achieve
- Several treatment sessions are needed to see desired results
- Will not work for more advanced skin sagging
