Are you a candidate for an abdominoplasty in Dallas? Texas residents are fortunate to have one of the foremost experts in their neighborhood in order to help them assess whether or not they are a potential candidate for this procedure.
The first step, in assessing whether or not you are a possible candidate, is to ask yourself a series of questions:
• do you have excess abdominal skin that is loose or saggy?
• does your abdomen protrude and/or is disproportionate to the rest of your body?
• have your abdominal muscles weakened as the result of pregnancy or aging?
• do you possess excess fat which is concentrated beneath your abdominal skin?
If you are an individual considering having an abdominoplasty in Dallas Texas, who answered yes to one or more of the above questions, then you may wish to schedule a consultation with Dr. Steven White whose practice is located in Dallas. Tummy tuck procedures, also known as abdominoplasties, are not a viable option for everyone. Indeed, one of the primary purposes of your first consultation with Dr. White will be to evaluate whether or not you are a candidate for an abdominoplasty.
In order to make this evaluation, he will consider a number of criteria including the quality of your abdominal skin, the location of any existing scars, the quantity and locale of any excess fat and the status of the underlying muscles.
When going to your first consultation to discuss the possibility of having an abdominoplasty, Dallas Texas residents should bring several items of information with them. The first item is their complete medical history including any previous surgical procedures as well as any past or present medical conditions. Also, it will be important to inform him of any medications, herbal remedies and/or nutritional supplements that you are taking as well as any history of alcohol, tobacco and/or substance abuse.
Also be sure to mention any future plans which may interfere with your tummy tuck when visiting Dr. White at his office in Dallas. Tummy tuck results may be compromised by pregnancy or significant weight loss.
After reviewing all of the factors unique to your situation, Dr. White may offer a set of alternatives to an abdominoplasty. These alternatives may include liposuction alone or a mini abdominoplasty as well as other possibilities. Mini abdominoplasties need only a smaller incision, but are unable to correct loose or saggy skin above the navel.
