Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin that is concentrated in the abdomen. In most cases, a tummy tuck can restore weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
Even with proper diet and exercise, there are some patients that can’t achieve their desired abdominal profile because of loose or sagging skin and weakened underlying muscle tissue.
