Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck, or an abdominoplasty, can enhance your appearance and self-confidence. The tummy tuck procedure involves removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen, often with tightening of abdominal wall muscles.   A tummy tuck can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen, remove excess bulk, and recreate a waistline that expanded over time.

The best candidates for abdominoplasty are men or women who have excess skin and fat of the abdomen.  The operation is particularly helpful to men and women who, through episodes of weight gain and loss or pregnancy, have stretched their abdominal muscles and skin beyond the point where they can return to normal.

Tummy tuck can also be combined with liposuction to remove fat from problem areas throughout the body.
