What’s an Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck?
Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a Tummy Tuck, is a body contouring operation designed to remove excess abdominal wall tissue and fat and to tighten the muscle and fascia deep to the abdominal wall. This procedure results in a flatter, thinner and tighter stomach and waistline. It is indicated for people who have excess abdominal skin and fat as well as for people with separation of the muscles of the abdominal wall. The separation of the abdominal muscles, otherwise known as abdominal wall diastasis, is a common condition that happens to women after pregnancy or is caused simply by the weakening of the abdominal wall fascia. Tightening the muscles back to preexisting shape provides a dramatic improvement to the appearance of the abdomen. Often this procedure is combined with liposuction of the “love handles” to provide an improved contour of the stomach and an hour-glass appearance of the waistline.
