Tummy Tuck /(Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty or “Tummy Tuck,” is a surgical procedure carried out to reduce the excess wrinkled skin and fatty tissue from the abdomen and to tighten abdominal muscles. The overall effect is to produce a smoother, flatter tummy.
The best candidate for this surgery has normal or excessive body weight, weak muscles and excess skin.
The typical patient who presents for tummy tuck is the patient who has lost considerable weight with diet and exercise and is unable to gain the definition in their abdomen that they desire. Obese patients (those with a calculated body mass index greater than 30) may be advised to lose weight prior to surgery.
