Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the lower abdomen and the muscles of the abdomen wall are tightened. This procedure can drastically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. The procedure is particularly helpful to women who, through multiple pregnancies, have stretched their abdomen so far that it does not return to its normal shape. Tummy tucks are often performed in conjunction with liposuction.

The best candidates for abdominoplasty are men or women in good health and relatively good shape, but, who are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin that won't respond to exercise.

Some risks of tummy tucks include infection and blood clots. These can be treated easily, and are rare. Tummy Tucks have been known to leave scarring. Some scarring may require a second operation.
