Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a popular procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area to reveal a flat, toned tummy. Removal of excess skin is called a panniculectomy. The tummy tuck portion of the surgery tightens the underlying muscles and creates a flatter abdomen. When combined with liposuction, a tummy tuck can be an ideal surgery to bring your body to a pre-pregnancy body.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is an excellent option for individuals who struggle with loose skin, excess fat deposits, or weakened abdominal muscles. Women who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth often find that their stomachs have lost their previous firmness and elasticity. Abdominoplasty can address these concerns by removing the excess skin. Tightening the abdominal muscles underneath restores the tummy, thus creating a flat and toned belly.

It is important to note that abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss, and individuals considering this surgery should be at a stable weight before undergoing the procedure. Patients who have maintained a healthy lifestyle and are committed to maintaining their results through proper diet and exercise are more likely to achieve long-lasting benefits from their tummy tuck surgery.
