Have you ever noticed that all the dieting and exercise in the world won’t give you the physique you desire? Even though you’re able to lose the weight, you might not be able to achieve the muscle tone. It’s just the way some of us are genetically built. Even with a healthy lifestyle of good diet and exercise, plus all those endless hours of crunches and sit-ups, you still have that extra layer of fat. But, now you can have the 6-pack abs you’ve always desired with 6-Pack implants. If you feel that you live a healthy lifestyle and are not able to achieve the abdominals you desire, maybe it’s time you speak with J. Howell Tiller M.D., P.A., a board certified plastic plastic surgeon to discuss the possibility of having an abdominal augmentation.
Abdominal implants are made to mimic six-pack abdominal muscles and provide an extremely defined appearance. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Small well hidden incisions are made at the belly button, in which the surgeon can place six to eight carefully sculpted individual implants. The implants, which lie over the muscle, are designed to conform to the muscle and be flexible enough to move with your bodily activity, while also feeling natural to the touch.
Once your surgery is complete, your incisions may be taped or stitched and bandaged to allow for seepage of blood and fluid. You will be sent home wearing a compression garment to promote healing. After the surgery, the pain is usually very minimal. What pain that is experienced is managed very easily with pain medications. The dressings are usually removed within two to three days after the procedure at which time the patient can begin more routine physical activities such as driving and light housework. Gym works, running, and heavier activities can usually be started within sour to six weeks.
