If you are someone who had a new year’s resolution to  lose weight  (specifically, fat) then you might find it helpful to know that even after you make your goal and lose fat, there might be some more steps that you will have to take in order to get the body that you want. What kind of steps?

Well, if you ask anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight at any point in their life (mothers are a great example) they will tell you that even if the fat is gone, often times there is still  skin  that is left over that you just can’t get rid. It is no secret that working out and burning calories doesn’t help you lose skin (although it might tighten it), so what can someone do if they have stubborn skin that just won’t leave their body even after  weight loss ?

Most people are finding their answer to be  Plastic Surgery .

Now, you are probably thinking, “Oh, of course – Plastic  Surgery  is the answer to everything, right?”. No, that isn’t what is being said. Simply put, there are two procedures that can help get rid of the excess skin around your abdominal area. One procedure is a surgical one, and the other is a more natural one. One is newer, and one is older. The first procedure is called liposuction, and the second is atummy tuck.

Let’s examine both of these procedures and see which one can work best for your body.


Liposuction has been around for some time now. In fact, according to ASPS it is one of the world’s most popular plastic surgery procedures. The reason? People love getting rid of unnecessary fat and excess skin. As simple as this sounds, the procedure is slightly complicated but usually takes no more than three hours (of course this depends on the patient and the surgeon).

Liposuction uses general anesthesia to ensure the patients safety. The great thing about liposuction is that people see real results (and quickly).

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a procedure that is more focused on removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal area. People rave about this procedure because they can know that they have worked hard to get rid of what, and all they need is a finishing touch on their abdominal area to really have the body that they have always wanted. Wouldn’t you be happy, too?

Other Options

If a surgical procedure is not something that you want to do to tighten your skin (or lose fat) there are some other options. The first option is to perform abdominal, oblique, and core  exercise  every single day. At first, start out with your body weight. After you make some progress, gradually increase to some weight. The second option (which can be combined with the first) is to stretch your core and abdominal area every single day. Another option is to eat healthy.

Think of everything that you can accomplish if you combine all of these procedures and disciplines!
