In today’s society, it’s widespread for people to suffer from obesity, especially earlier in life. As people age, they tend to start taking more aggressive measures to maintain positive health, and this can result in dramatic weight-loss. When weight is lost quickly, or the patient was previously morbidly obese, significant amounts of loose skin are often left as a result.
Mini Tummy Tuck
Sometimes a full tummy tuck isn’t necessary, especially in those cases where the loose and flabby skin is only located in the area beneath the belly button. Rather than a full tummy tuck that requires work throughout the entire abdomen and involves the temporary separation of the belly button from the surrounding skin, a mini-tummy tuck only takes place beneath the belly button.
Sometimes unwanted fat can be quite useful for filling out other areas of the body and reducing wrinkles and creases. When this is done, it’s known as an autologous fat transfer or “fat transferring”. Materials like Radiesse and Restylane are often used for this same purpose, but there is nothing that compares to using the bodies own natural substances to help restore a youthful appearance.
Fat grafting is a process by which unwanted fat from one area of the body is transferred to another portion of the body that could benefit from smoothing or plumping by the addition of volume. In some cases, substances like Restalyne and Radiesse are used in lieu of the patient’s own fat, but the use of the patient’s own fat is always superior to artificial replacements.
Due to body changes that occur throughout a patients life, commonly from weight loss or pregnancy, the skin around the stomach can become loose, flabby, or deformed. This is particularly common in patients who have gone through weight-loss procedures like a gastric bypass. Following these events, the skin around the abdomen becomes loose and often hangs down over the waist.
