Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck Patient Success Story

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) flattens the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. The best candidates for an abdominoplasty are women or men 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 pregnancy have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal. It is also beneficial to those who have lost weight and have loose overhanging abdominal wall skin that has lost its elasticity. Results can be dramatic. Clothes fit better and you feel better about your appearance.
