Pregnancies, weight fluctuations, and the aging process can take a tremendous toll on a woman’s figure. The stomach, repeatedly stretched and scarred, may become droopy, loose, and out of shape. Diet and exercise often do little to eliminate this excess tissue, and even those at their ideal weight can experience these issues. Women struggling with stubborn, unsightly abdominal skin and flab may notice clothing fits poorly. Many will experience a dramatic decrease in self-confidence, uncomfortable with their marred stomach contour.Common causes of excess abdominal tissue include:

  • Aging
  • Pregnancy
  • Heredity
  • Prior abdominal surgery
  • Weight Fluctuations
  • Loose Skin

Luckily, there is help for those struggling with sagging, ugly abdominal tissue with Dr. Jerome Lamb in Kansas City. The abdominoplasty, more commonly called a tummy tuck, is designed to remove the bulging, unattractive fat and skin that accumulates along the abdomen, resulting in a thinner, smaller, more youthful waistline. Additionally, the procedure will tighten up the underlying musculature, providing a flatter, firmer stomach, and a stronger abdominal wall.
