What is a Tummy Tuck?
A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) aims to remove excess skin and fat deposits from the stomach with the additional benefit of repairing abdominal muscles, which in turn, improves your abdominal contour and gives your stomach a flatter appearance.
As we get older, there are a number of things that can wreak havoc on our midsection, particularly extreme weight loss and childbearing. These circumstances can make it incredibly difficult to regain tone and tightness in the abdomen, regardless of how many sit-ups we do or calories we cut, which occurs when the abdominal muscles have been damaged or weakened, causing the stomach to protrude.
This frequently happens during pregnancy when the stretching of the stomach causes the abdominal muscles to separate. Once this happens, no amount of diet or exercise will deliver the results you desire, not until the muscles are repaired. Often, the skin is stretched beyond the limits of natural repair during pregnancy and weight fluctuation, leaving the individual with stretch marks and loose, hanging skin and fat.
A tummy tuck procedure addresses all of these issues by streamlining and sculpting loose skin around the midsection, restoring your stomach to a more youthful state.
