Tummy tuck surgery, also called "abdominoplasty," is a procedure designed to tighten and sculpt the upper and lower abdomen. During this procedure, excess fat and skin are removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened to provide a flatter, more youthful-looking midsection.
Thinking about having a Tummy Tuck?
With tummy tuck surgery, you can experience the following benefits:
Remove sagging abdominal skin
Sagging abdominal skin can result from weight loss, pregnancy, or the natural aging process. It often appears very wrinkled and can even hang past the pubic hair line. Tummy tuck surgery will remove this unsightly skin to provide a slimmer and toner result that will boost both comfort and confidence.
Restore your pre-pregnancy body
Even women with "great genes" experience significant changes in their body after pregnancy. Tummy tuck surgery will repair and restore stretched abdominal muscles, remove excess fat, and tighten the skin to reveal a youthful-looking midsection.
Remove stretch marks
Stretch marks occur as a result of weight gain, pregnancy, or aging. They often appear on the lower abdomen where much of the skin is removed during an abdominoplasty. If stretch marks coincide with the excess skin that is to be removed, they will be removed along with it.
Tighten loosened abdominal muscles
Diastasis recti, or loosened abdominal muscles, can occur from pregnancy or weight gain. Even after weight is lost, the separated muscles allow the gut to push outward, leading to a permanently protruding abdomen. Tummy tuck surgery will tighten these muscles to create a firm, sculpted foundation.
Increase comfort during routine activities
Excess abdominal skin can lead to difficulty performing exercise and routine activities. With this extra skin out of the way, patients are freed from these limitations.
