Abdominoplasty is the medical term for a tummy tuck procedure, which flattens and tones the midsection by reducing fat deposits and excess skin and tissue around the abdomen.
What expectations should I have with a tummy tuck?
For the right patients, a tummy tuck can successfully treat the appearance of:
- Loose stomach skin and stretched abdominal muscles following pregnancy and childbirth
- Excess skin that forms around the abdomen with significant weight loss
- Age-related loss of abdominal muscle tone and skin tone
- Fat deposits around the midsection can linger even with increased exercise and positive dietary changes
