Also known as “abdominoplasty,” a tummy tuck is an ideal procedure for individuals who have excess abdominal fat and skin and/or weakened abdominal muscles.
Often, patients struggle to lose the last bit of fat on their abdomen, and no lotion or expensive product can get rid of sagging skin.
The tummy tuck targets the root of the problem by first tightening the abdominal muscles, which provides a firmer structure for the skin to adhere to. Excess fat is removed, and the skin is then re-draped over the firmer foundation. The effects of pregnancy, aging, and weight fluctuations will be nearly invisible in the abdominal area after the procedure.
