Tips from our Tummy Tuck Surgeon
Being overweight in America means you are just 1 person among approximately 35% of people in the nation in this state of health.
As of this writing, obesity levels have reached about 25% and are growing each day. Most people, however, feel like they are the only ones getting gawked at when they leave the house.
Wanting to lose weight may no longer be the issue for you, but now that you achieved what you so desperately wanted through dieting, surgery, extreme exercise, or perhaps gastric bypass or lap band surgery.
...You may find that now you have extra skin hanging around that was once stretched out over your former body size.
Tummy tuck after weight loss at our abdominoplasty NY surgical centers can remove all of that excess skin so you can finally reveal your true self that’s been hiding beneath the extra weight for all of these years.
Tips from our Abdominoplasty NY Surgeons
Obesity and Your Body Just Don’t Get Along
So often we hear how being overweight or obese is detrimental for your health, but just how unhealthy is it? The facts show that our bodies can develop multiple diseases just because of added weight.
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Coronary artery disease
- Sleep apnea
Depending on where the fat develops can also be a factor as to the level of risk for developing some of these diseases. Having the weight around your mid-section (visceral fat between the internal organs) can put you at even greater risk than if the fat is accumulated more around your hips.
Psychological Harm Occurs, Too
Not only is a weight issue trouble for your body, including stress on your back and joints, it is also bad for your mind. You most likely can’t perform very many exercises or, in extreme cases, don’t leave the house or get outside very often.
Having access to the sun helps our bodies a lot as it gives us certain vitamins and hormones that increase our mood and health. This can in turn motivate us to get moving and make changes in our life.
This is why tummy tuck after weight loss can greatly improve a patient's quality of life by opening the doors to making it easier to exercise.
Taking the Last Bit Off
When you are finally able to conquer weight loss in the ways that work best for you, it is a major relief and stress release. You may not have gone the extreme route like they do on the reality show The Biggest Loser, but the happy fact is that you have reached your goal of losing the weight!
The next step is obvious as you look in the mirror and still have the signs that you were once much larger than you are now. Having that excess skin can be just as embarrassing as when you were overweight since you still do not feel comfortable in your own skin (let alone letting others see you).
