Also known as a tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin. In most cases abdominoplasties produce an abdomen profile that is smoother and firmer by restoring weakened or separated muscles.

Sometimes methods such as exercise and weight control cannot achieve our goals toward a well-toned abdomen. Even people with otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.

Common causes of this include: pregnancy, aging, significant fluctuations in weight, heredity, or prior surgery. Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if you are physically healthy and have realistic expectations.
