What is the difference between skin tone and excess skin?

It is a known fact in the world of cosmetic surgery that if you have a good skin tone, the better results you will get. This condition extends as far as achieving an hourglass figure using the tummy tuck procedure. Most patients believe that that having a tummy tuck will result in a pre-baby tummy. However, it is just a popular misconception. Although in some cases it can happen, tummy tuck has its own list of limitations. Whether you have a very good skin tone, it would really be hard, if not impossible, to not bring back the tightness of your belly prior to weight gain or pregnancy.

Surgeons look at two key factors in order to determine the tightness of the belly after the intervention. Excess skin is defined as having more skin than you should have in any given anatomical area while the skin tone determines how much your skin can be stretched.

Let’s put it this way. If you have a good skin tone, your belly will be significantly tighter after the surgery. In contrast, if you have poor skin tone and excess skin, your belly will be flatter and have a nicer shape. However, your skin will become significantly stretched.

Patients must fully understand that a tummy tuck procedure cannot undo any kind of internal damage to the skin. A surgeon can only go as far as cutting the excess skin at best. It is important to keep in mind that every individual has different skin tone. That’s why the results of this procedure to others must not be relied upon. Your surgeon will tell you the difference between your skin tone and the excess skin in your body as well as the different factors involve so you can have a more realistic expectation after the intervention.
