Are diet and exercise not giving you the smooth, sleek tummy you desire? If you feel you have a little too much fat or excess skin in your abdomen that won’t diminish even though you eat right and stay active, you may want to consider an abdominoplasty, popularly referred to as a “tummy tuck.” This procedure flattens your abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall creating a profile that is smoother and firmer.
For most tummy tuck procedures, you will be given a general anesthetic. When beginning the procedure, an incision will be made just under your pubic line that goes from hip to hip. A second incision is made around the belly button. The skin is then lifted and the abdominal muscles are surgically repaired. The skin is pulled down and the excess skin is removed. Generally, liposuction is also used to remove excess fat. This will create a more flat, toned-looking stomach.
