Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck Close Up

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes unwanted fat and excess skin; resulting in a smoother and firmer abdominal profile. Tummy tuck surgery is an invasive procedure, requiring a fully horizontal incision in between the pubic hairline and belly button. The most common causes of a protruding abdomen include:

  • Aging
  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Prior surgery
  • Significant fluctuations in weight

When to Consider a Tummy Tuck?

Please remember that tummy tuck surgery is not a substitute for weight loss and should not be considered an exercise alternative. You should consider undergoing tummy tuck surgery if:

  • Even after strenous exercise and diet your abdomen is still protruding
  • You cannot lose your “pregnancy stomach”
  • You have undergone significant weight loss and wish to get rid of the excess skin on your stomach
  • You are self concious and unhappy with the protrusion of your stomach
