A tummy tuck, known clinically as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at removing fat (subcutaneous) tissue from the middle and lower abdomen. Fat removal in these areas allows the surgeon to contour the shape of the body to create a firmer, tighter waist and midsection. Tummy tucks are one of the most common cosmetic procedure types for women and men who desire a leaner physique. Since tummy tucks are so popular, there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding this surgical procedure. In this article, we will go over some of the more common myths regarding tummy tucks and why they are misleading.
With all the misinformation online and in the media, it’s easy to be misled by what is fact and what is fiction in the skin care world. Some of us may have been taught early on by our parents or peers common misconceptions about proper wound and skin care. Some common beliefs, such as certain foods causing acne or using vitamin E to help your scars fade don’t have any evidence to support them. When it comes to your skin, you want only clinically-proven ways of keeping it looking young and healthy.
