can you tell me about a tummy tuck to remove streth marks and loose skin and to repair a colapsed stomach wall was it?

Tummy tuck: A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the lower half of your abdomen, giving you a flatter stomach with less fat. It also tightens the abdominal muscles that have been loosened by pregnancy. The scar is at the bikini line and around the belly button. Recovery is 4-6 weeks, although many people go back to work after 2-3 weeks. You have to wear an abdominal binder for at least a month.
