A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened muscles to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.
The weakening of the abdomen is something that occurs naturally in every person. This depends on age, gender, physique, body weight and any operations or pregnancies. A tummy tuck restores the abdomen to its original state and ensures a flatter and tighter abdomen.
A tummy tuck can be performed for medical or aesthetic reasons. The slackening and stretching of the abdominal muscles in combination with excess weight can place the spine incorrectly. This can cause back pain in the long run. A less serious form of sagging, such as a slightly bulging lower abdomen or wrinkled abdominal skin, may also be a reason to consider a tummy tuck.
