Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Generally referred to as a “tummy tuck”, abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The improvement in contour can be quite dramatic, with better-fitting clothes, even getting back in a bathing suit when you never thought you would, and greatly improved self-esteem.
The procedure helps to improve the contour of the abdomen and to narrow the waist by tightening the abdominal muscles. Women, with stretched abdominal areas due to previous pregnancies, can benefit considerably from abdominoplasty. Other individuals whose skin has lost some of its elasticity and are slightly obese can experience an improvement in their abdominal area.
