ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCK)

Abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) involves removing excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and tightening the muscle layers of the trunk to improve tone and the overall shape of the area.

With time, many factors can lead to loose and sagging skin and fat, as well as weakened and separated abdominal muscles. Some common factors leading to this may include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Significant weight loss from exercise, diet or weight reduction surgery.
  • Previous surgery, which may lead to muscle weakness, separation or hernia formation.
