A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. An abdominoplasty is a procedure that flattens your abdomen by removing extra fat and skin and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall.
Tummy tucks can be thought of as "mini" or more involved procedures depending on the amount of skin and fat.The procedure shouldn't be used as an alternative to weight loss.
A tummy tuck is suitable for both men and women who are in good general health overall and are at a stable weight. It's best to be a non-smoker.
Women who have muscles and skin stretched after several pregnancies may find the procedure useful to tighten those muscles and reduce that skin. A tummy tuck is also an alternative for men or women who were obese at one point in their lives and have lost significant weight, but still have excessive fat deposits or loose skin in the abdominal area.
