What Is A Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure that targets the belly, one of the most common problem areas. During this procedure, excess fat and skin are targeted and removed, leading to a more toned, flat midsection. The abdominoplasty procedure is effective for targeting the upper and lower abdomen, unlike other procedures.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The tummy tuck allows for more dramatic results than a mini tummy tuck or liposuction. With a tummy tuck, excess skin, fat, and residual tissue is completely removed. The result is a more toned, flatter, smoother midsection. For some, the results are dramatic enough to go down one or two pant sizes.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Tummy Tuck?
The tummy tuck is ideal for people who have a large amount of excess skin and fat in the midsection to the point where it is disproportionate to the rest of the body. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is maximally effective for individuals who are maintaining a healthy weight through a stable diet and exercise routine. Tummy tucks are commonly performed on women and men who have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess, sagging skin in the abdomen area as a result. The procedure is also common among women who have been pregnant and have excess skin that stretched out as a result.

How is a Tummy Tuck Performed?
Your surgeon will first make careful incisions around the abdomen, usually one or two depending on your exact shape and the targeted area’s size. Typically, one incision is on the pubic bone, and one is near the belly button. However, it will depend on your anatomy. Next, your surgeon will remove excess skin and fat in the underlying area. Once all the excess tissue is removed, he or she will pull the skin tightly over the area and remove any overhang before closing the incisions.
