What is a tummy tuck?

An abdominoplasty, commonly is known as a tummy tuck, it is a safe and highly effective procedure, performed to reduce stomach fat excess, loose tone, sagging skin, and refine laxity in the abdominal wall. Factors that can define a good candidate for an abdominoplasty include significant loss weight, pregnancies, previous stomach surgeries that need to be corrected, the age effects and body gravity.

Tummy tucks very often goes together with liposuction in the back part, waist, thighs or buttocks area for a more complete and better body contour. Because types and target regions to improvement vary from patient to patient, the surgeon will propound you one of the five types of tummy tucks: endoscopic, mini, moderate, full and circumferential. The ideal procedure for you will be determined and discussed during your initial consultation.
