WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK?

Sometimes simply dieting and exercising are not enough to take care of waistline problems. In such cases, a patient may wish to consider a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty). A Tummy Tuck* procedure is designed for those who wish to have a flatter and tighter stomach. It is also helpful in remedying the vertical separation of abdomen muscles known as diastasis, which can occur following pregnancy.

REASONS FOR CONSIDERING A TUMMY TUCK

  • Loss of skin elasticity or diastases (loose abome muscles) due to pregnancy

  • The removal of unsightly skin and fat deposits as well as the proper alignment of the abdomen muscles to produce a more flattering look
  • Inability of dieting and exercise to improve the abdomen area
