Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure involving the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall and create a smoother, trimmer profile. Patients with loose tissues after pregnancy or individuals with sagging skin after major weight loss are often candidates for abdominoplasty, but other factors, such as aging, genetics, and prior surgery, can also affect the tone and shape of the abdomen.
