Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)

Diet and exercise sometimes do little to eliminate unwanted fat and loose skin in the abdominal area. If you are bothered by these appearance problems, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) may be a good choice for you. Abdominoplasty is performed to rid a person of excess skin and to tighten the weak abdominal wall muscles. This is frequently present in women following childbirth.

The procedure can be done as an outpatient surgery and sometimes can be done as a mini-abdominoplasty, which works mainly on the lower portion of the abdomen. Recovery period is anywhere from 14-21 days, depending on the extent of the procedure and the tightening of the abdominal wall musculature. Liposuction and body contouring can also be performed at the time of this surgery.

*Plastic surgery results can vary from patient to patient and are not guaranteed.
