An abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck”, is a body contouring procedure. It is designed to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the lower portion of the abdomen. The results are best for those patients who are closer to ideal body weight.
A “tummy tuck” may be a good choice for those with the following circumstances:
- Good physical and psychological health
- Realistic expectations
- Finished with child-bearing
- Dissatisfaction with stretch marks and excess skin in the lower abdomen
