All about tummy tucks
What does a tummy tuck entail?
A Tummy Tuck refers to the surgical procedure called an abdominoplasty. An abdominoplasty is an operation designed to remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen. It also is used to tighten the abdominal muscles which have become loose and weak with time.
An abdominoplasty is a great option for patients that have gained an excess of fat and loose skin in the abdomen, which can not be treated with liposuction alone. Most patients are women who have had multiple children. In these cases, the muscles of the abdomen, which were weakened with pregnancy, can also be tightened.
We also treat male patients who have lost a significant amount of weight or those that deal with weight fluctuations.
Here are some of the benefits of a tummy tuck:
A flatter, more toned abdomen
Improved self-confidence and body image
Increased physical activity and fitness level
Reduced back pain
