As we age, the abdominal skin loses its elasticity and the underlying muscles become loose and weak. Fat distribution to the lower abdomen also increases - creating a bulge.
This loss of shape to the abdomen is further exacerbated by excess loose skin created by pregnancy or weight loss, which no amount of exercise can reverse.
The tummy tuck procedure or abdominoplasty aims to remove the loose excess skin, including stretch marks, and tighten the weakened abdominal muscles. Often, liposculpture is combined with the tummy tuck procedure to refine the result and to remove some excess fatty deposit.
Properly performed, a tummy tuck will produce a firm and taut abdomen and restore the waistline once obscured by loose skin folds.
