What is a tummy tuck surgery procedure?
A “tummy tuck” or Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to flatten the abdomen by tightening the muscles in the abdominal wall and removing excess fatty tissue and skin.
The procedure is one of the most requested cosmetic surgery procedures and can benefit men and women who are bothered by a protruding abdomen or unhappy with the size and shape of their stomach area.
Patients whose weight has been stabilized in their weight loss program or who feel they are at their ideal weight are the best candidates for a tummy tuck.
Many patients combine their tummy tuck with other cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction of the abdomen or liposuction of the flanks, breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery to compliment an overall balanced body proportion.
