What is a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a “tummy tuck” is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.
The best candidates for abdominoplasty are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise. The surgery is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal.
Your surgery will be done under general anesthesia in a hospital, where you can stay for one or two days. Abdominoplasty usually takes four hours, depending on the extent of work required.
Abdominoplasty produces excellent long lasting results for patients with weakened abdominal muscles or excess skin.
