Facing major aesthetic and cosmetic issues is normal after weight loss. Issues such as excess skin that sags or hangs loose off  of the body that will not shrink back to fit a slimmer new frame are common. These cosmetic issues are natural and is to be expected given the nature of skin.

When skin is stretched out a good deal, it can only revert back so far. For this reason, many people have come to our New York plastic surgeon to undergo New York tummy tuck surgery (also known as abdominoplasty). The tummy tuck is able to revise the abdominal area if there is a lot excess skin around the waist.

This may explain why the tummy tuck has been so popular with celebrities. Since they’re always under brights lights and hounded by flashbulbs on the red carpet, there is a lot of pressure for celebrities to look their best as often as possible. It’s no surprise cosmetic body contouring surgeries like tummy tuck or liposuction are in such high demand in Hollywood.

For celebrities who have had children, the tummy tuck is especially useful for revising the figure. Several actresses and personalities have been forthcoming about how much tummy tuck has enhanced their appearance; including Patricia Heaton, Shar Jackson, Dayna Devon, Kate Gosselin, and Kendra Wilkinson. Even  Angelina Jolie was rumored to have underwent a tummy tuck after giving birth.

Tummy tuck is sort of the tip of the iceberg when it comes to celebrity plastic surgery, as you can imagine. Nose jobs, breast enlargement, facelifts, and other surgeries are quite popular as well. And when the surgery is at its best, you will not even realize that your favorite star has had any major work performed.
