Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty surgery, or “tummy tuck surgery,” is a cosmetic procedure that is used to thin and refine the waistline. The surgery is more complex than liposuction, as it involves the removal of excess fat and hanging skin from the abdomen and the tightening of the fascia muscles on the abdominal wall. Tummy tucks are performed on both men and women and are particularly effective for tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin after pregnancy and dramatic weight loss.
