In brief: Tummy Tuck

Weight loss, pregnancy and genetics are all factors that can cause the tummy to develop loose, sagging skin and a bulging appearance.
The tummy tuck procedure removes excess loose skin, creates a slimmer waist, and tightens underlying abdominal muscles.

Pain is very manageable and short- lived. Scar is very acceptable. Life-changing!

In brief: Helps in many ways

A 'tummy tuck' or abdominoplasty is designed to help in multiple ways.
It allows for removal of excess skin and fat of the lower abdominal area, give more definition of the waste, and allow for for repair of the '6 pack' muscles that have seperated over time. In consultation, your doctor can show you how all those are done and the usual incision location (bikini line incision).
