Plastic surgeries are popular all year long, but the winter season is often the best time to undergo an invasive procedure such as an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck. This body contouring procedure sometimes involves liposuction and breast augmentation or a breast lift for a combination procedure called the mommy makeover.
It gets harder to keep a trim and toned physique as we age. Not only does the busyness of life often get in the way of eating healthy and maintaining an exercise routine but the body’s natural metabolism slows down as well. It’s these factors that contribute to the development of pockets of fat around the midsection.
If you have issues with loose or sagging skin and small pockets of fat around your midsection, an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can help. At New Image Plastic Surgery in Virginia, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartisde offers multiple tummy tuck options to address your body contouring goals.
