One of the most common plastic surgery procedures is the tummy tuck. This is a procedure where the excess abdominal fat and skin are directly excised. Once the excess fat and skin are removed, we tighten up your loose abdominal wall musculature and re-drape the remaining tissue for an enhanced abdominal wall shape and contour. This procedure is ideal when patients are poor liposuction candidates, or their abdominal muscles are weak and separated, as often happens after childbirth. This procedure rejuvenates the abdominal wall and gives it a more youthful shape.
Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a cosmetic surgery used to make the abdomen more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose tissues after pregnancy or individuals with sagging after major weight loss.
