As a woman, there comes a time in your life when you realize that efforts at dieting and exercise are not changing the appearance of your sagging and protruding belly, even men in their 30-40s notice a pot belly coming that refuses to budge with diet or exercise alone. This is a very common problem, especially in women after childbirth- a bulge tummy is more likely to develop, no matter how slender or fit you may be otherwise. Men cannot exclude from this as it’s a general tendency with Indian men that they develop a pot belly in their late 30 or early 40s and almost 90 percent of Indian women (whether they are married or not) have their lower abdomen slightly bulging out that never settles down completely. The worst part of this genetic fat collection pattern is when you start gaining weight with time even in your early twenties, fat starts to collect in your waist-line very fast making this area protruded like -4 months' pregnant women or having a “food-baby” inside that is certainly an undesirable thing. This problem can affect your overall lifestyle and many times self confidence is marred by the disproportionate contours of waistline. As a result, you start feeling conscious and hesitate wearing outfits that highlight your waist; even many women wear the skirts and saree above the waist to hide the bulge and men fail to hide their tummy bulge in fitted T-shirts so all you do is bid adieu to such popular clothing. But is there anything that can help to budge that tummy bulge and make your clothes fit you again? The answer is Yes, actually this is the ideal situation for Tummy-tuck because your tummy requires some extra help to fix all three layers (abdominal fat, muscles and loose skin).
“People often say that they have No Time for Exercise because they are too busy. Well, if you’re not determined for an active and healthy lifestyle, then nothing on earth can help you with reduction of fat because healthy diet and regular exercise is not an option to excuse but a lifestyle modification.”- Dr. R. K. Mishra.
Tummy tuck is only suitable for those who live a healthy lifestyle (regular exercise and healthy diet) because people who eat right and exercise regularly have good abdominal tone (and almost no fat in internal organs like intestines, liver or heart). Tummy-tuck cannot remove fat from internal organs, only diet and exercise can do that. It can remove the pockets of stubborn fat, loose skin and stretched muscles that refuse to get back their shape with diet or exercise but not helpful if you rely on this procedure completely.
