Tighten Your Body with a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is designed to firm and smooth your abdomen. The procedure removes excess skin and fat and also tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. The result is a flatter abdominal profile.
The best candidate for a tummy tuck is a woman of close to normal body weight whose lower abdominal skin and muscle has been stretched by childbirth. Usually there is an extra fat layer in this area. A flat abdomen is obtained at the expense of a fairly long scar. Stretch marks in the lower abdomen are removed.
Abdominoplasty patients must be in good health and be non-smokers. This is one of the more major cosmetic surgery procedures and typically requires two weeks before the patient may return to work.
