If you are unhappy with the appearance of your abdominal area because of excess fat and skin, then a tummy tuck may be right for you. Tummy tuck surgery can restore a slimmer, flatter midriff.
Tummy tuck surgery:
- Removes excess abdominal fat
- Tightens sagging abdominal skin
- Repairs stretched and separated abdominal muscles
If you have only deposits of stubborn fat without much excess skin, then liposuction may be another option to discuss with one of our plastic surgeons.
Tummy tucks are often beneficial for women who have been pregnant. During pregnancy, the muscles of your abdomen stretch as your baby grows. By the end of your pregnancy, the muscles can be stretched to the point of separation, which can lead to a drooping abdomen. No matter how intensely you exercise, it is unlikely you will be able to repair these muscles with exercise alone. During a tummy tuck, one of our experienced plastic surgeons can repair the stretched muscles by stitching them back together.
Tummy tuck surgery is also beneficial for certain male cosmetic goals. Like women, men can experience sagging skin and excess fat in the abdomen, and a tummy tuck can remove the extra skin and fat.
