Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy tuck is the common term referring to the operation abdominoplasty. As can be deduced from the wording the procedure will reduce the overall size or laxity in the abdominal region making the contour and profile more pleasing.

The process involves removing excess skin and fatty tissues along with tightening the abdominal muscles that have been stretched or weakened (often a result of excessive weight gain or pregnancy(s)).
