Abdominoplurgical procedure that is meant to smoothen and flatten the abdominal region. This is done by removing excess skin and sagging fat to repair loose muscle. This surgical procedure will create an abdominal profile that is firm, shapely, and smooth. Depending on the reason for a tummy tuck , the procedure can either be cosmetic or reconstructive.
In most cases, a tummy tuck is performed after pregnancy or weight loss that causes the skin to become stretched or saggy. Although it is possible to achieve a flat well-toned abdomen through exercise, this is not always the case. This condition can also affect an otherwise healthy bodyweight person.
