Tummy Tuck/Abdominoplasty

Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

It is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose or sagging tissues after pregnancy or major weight loss.

Abdominoplasty is a highly effective procedure that helps in getting the body shape as desired to achieve toned muscles. It is a preferred procedure as it gives long-lasting results. The only requirement for a person is to maintain their weight. It is a useful procedure for those who want a flat or a well-toned abdomen, but are unable to achieve it through exercise or weight control.
