Tummy Tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. Many people struggle with their mid-section appearance for a number of reasons. Some people have a hard time getting their mid-section back into shape after pregnancy has left excess, sagging skin and stretched out abdominal muscles. The Tummy Tuck procedure has also helped people who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time as is often seen in a bariatric surgery where there is excess, sagging skin left over. Other times, a person may just struggle with their mid-section simply due to genetics. We encourage you to check out our online before and after tummy tuck photo gallery to see real patient results and get an idea of the kind of results possible through the procedure.
The Tummy Tuck surgery may be performed on its own if the goal is simply to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. When a person wishes to also remove excess, stubborn fat in the area, the tummy tuck may be performed in combination with Liposuction.
