What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that is designed to achieve a flat, sculpted stomach and waistline. During a tummy tuck, the abdominal muscles are realigned and tightened with permanent sutures. Loose skin is removed, and the abdominal area is contoured. Patients often benefit from a tummy tuck after significant weight loss or pregnancy, which can result in loose skin and stretched-out abdominal muscles. These concerns cannot be resolved with diet and exercise alone, but surgery can improve the appearance of the abdomen.
