A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can help people who have weakened abdominal muscles and excess skin around their abdomen even after adopting a regular exercise program and healthy diet. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure in which the excess skin is removed from the abdominal area and muscles are tightened to create a younger, more contoured silhouette.
An ideal Tummy Tuck patient:
- Is within 25-30% of his or her ideal body weight
- Is on a regular diet and exercise plan, yet has stubborn areas that need to be removed
- Has maintained a stable weight for the last 6 months
- Is committed to the risks and care program of a Tummy Tuck
