One of the main reasons for prematurely aging skin is the age-related decline of two important skin components: collagen and elastin. These two substances help to create structure in your skin as well as elasticity. A deficiency in collagen and elastin leads to skin that grows thinner and more prone to the development of fine lines and creases that can leave you looking older than you actually feel. Fortunately, you have a range of choices available to you when it comes to skin tightening.
If your skin laxity is severe enough, a surgical procedure like a tummy tuck may be the most appropriate treatment option. For those who are only just beginning to notice the development of lines and wrinkles, a non-surgical option may be all that is needed. It all depends on the unique case.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
Although many non-surgical skin tightening treatments have come online recently, it is still hard to beat the traditional approach when it comes to severe skin sagging and laxity. A tummy tuck procedure can be used to tighten loose skin, as well as remove any excess skin and tone the underlying abdominal muscles. The procedure allows the surgeon to access tissues under the surface of your skin and reposition any skin as needed.
A tummy tuck procedure makes a good skin tightening choice if you are dealing with skin laxity and excess skin on the stomach area. Our surgeon can use specialized techniques in order to bring about significant yet natural-looking results. When all is said and done, the skin will be tighter and smoother.
