A tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a complex surgical procedure that removes fat and excess skin from the abdomen. the underlying musculature of the abdominal wall is also tightened at that time. this procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. It can give you a tighter, firmer, flatter, stomach and thinner waist.
Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of a tummy tuck. However, you should understand that specific conditions determine who are ideal candidates, good candidates, and people who should seek a different approach to treatments.
The best candidates for a tummy tuck are individuals who are not obese and whose weight is stable. Women whose abdominal muscles have been stretched by pregnancy may especially benefit from the procedure. Loss of skin elasticity, frequently found in older individuals and in people who have lost a substantial amount of weight, can also be greatly improved.
