Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure to remove unwanted deposits of fat in the abdomen and stomach area. This fat is often resistant to dieting and exercise, and even healthy individuals may experience excess fat and sagging skin in the abdominal area due to aging, pregnancy, surgical procedures, genetics or changes in their weigh.
Abdominoplasty removes this excess fat and skin while also restoring and improving the underlying abdominal muscles to provide you with a slimmer, more toned and firm abdomen. The muscles of your abdomen will also be tightened as part of your procedure. Tummy tucks are one of the safest and most frequently performed cosmetic body procedures available.
Our plastic surgeon will provide you with detailed post-op instructions following your tummy tuck procedure to help you heal without complications and provide you with the best possible results.
If you are a woman and are planning to become pregnant, we recommend that you do not receive an abdominoplasty until after your pregnancy, and until after you have finished having children. Pregnancy will undo the results of your tummy tuck.
