By: Dr. Chet Mays


A lean midsection or sculpted abs can almost instantly give someone an enviable physique. Yet, these results can be challenging to achieve, especially for those of us busy with multiple life obligations, including school, work, family, or other tasks. Plus, no one wants to stress over every calorie and spend countless hours in the gym. And all the sit-ups in the world won't provide a breathtaking torso without a combination of many other factors, including genetics, hormones, and more.

Yet, there is one thing that can give you quick, significant results without requiring a glut of toil or time: a tummy tuck procedure at Mays Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. And fall's a great time to explore your options for a leaner, more sculpted midsection that you'll be able to flaunt the following year in Louisville, KY! Just reach out to us today to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Chet Mays.

Is fall a good time for a tummy tuck surgery?

A slim, tight tummy is many Americans' goal. But attaining it can be tricky, especially when various aspects, like aging, drastic weight loss, or a previous pregnancy, can cause loose, wrinkly skin on the abdomen. This unseemly skin and fat can dampen our confidence and stand in the way of a dream physique. And while fat can be lost through a diet and fitness regimen, removing excess skin may require a more involved procedure. Such as a tummy tuck, which can turn back the clock on your abdomen and give you an improved, attractive contour.

And for those seeking a more youthful look and increased self-confidence, fall is a perfect time for a tummy tuck since it provides enough time for your recovery, so you can be healed and exuberant over your new physique throughout the coming year.

How does a tummy tuck work?

A tummy tuck is also known as abdominoplasty, and have no worries: it's performed using general anesthesia so that you won't suffer any pain or discomfort. As can be expected of a procedure with such potentially physique-transforming results, this is not a one-size-fits-all technique.

No two patients have identical needs, and we pride ourselves on crafting a personalized treatment plan for each patient. So, first, we'll get to know you as both a person and a patient by discussing your expectations and lifestyle factors to devise your optimal solution.

The extent of the tummy tuck and the incision will differ based on your body and how much fat or excess skin you want to lose. Those with an excess amount of loose skin might better benefit from a full, more comprehensive tummy tuck. Yet those with wrinkling, rather than sagging, could benefit from a smaller incision. In either case, this advanced procedure can remove the unaesthetic issues caused by stubborn pockets of fat or sagging, loose skin.

Redefine your physique

A toned torso or defined abs are on most individuals' wish lists when it comes to body transformations. And indeed, an impressive midsection almost instantly draws the eyes and enhances one's physique. And Dr. Chet Mays would love to help you achieve (and flaunt) a leaner, more athletic-looking abdomen in Louisville, KY.

Best yet, you won't have to stress over a restrictive diet or spend untold hours lifting weights – the only weight you'll have to lift is your phone to contact us at Mays Plastic Surgery & Med Spa.
