About the Procedure

Patients report higher self esteem and an increase in body confidence following the surgery.

If you’ve got too much flab or excess skin in your abdomen that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise, you may be considering a “tummy tuck,” which doctors call “abdominoplasty.” This surgery flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall.

The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall.
