What Is Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty, better known as tummy tuck, is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen or tummy. A majority of patients opting for this procedure will be women who, following the birth of their child(ren), dislike the effects childbirth has had on their body shape and appearance. In a lot of cases, it also restores separated muscles.
A large cut is made under the abdomen and unwanted tissues are removed so that the remaining skin can be pulled closer. This cosmetic procedure aims to achieve a thinner and toned abdomen by surgical reduction of excess fat and skin. It firms out the sagging tissues as a result of ageing, pregnancy or excessive and sudden weight loss.
