The tummy tuck, technically known as the abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that flattens and tightens a stomach that may have excess flab or loose skin. It can be extremely difficult or impossible to eliminate loose skin from the stomach without this, because loose skin doesn’t often respond to dieting and exercise.
The tummy tuck flattens the stomach by surgically removing excess skin from the lower abdomen. If you are considering pregnancy, then you may want to postpone the procedure until after childbirth. The tummy tuck is also designed to restore weakened abdominal muscles for a trimmer, flatter stomach. The procedure is tailored to each patient and can vary in terms of the incision size and depth.
