Many people strive for a flat and well-toned abdomen through exercise and weight control, however, sometimes these methods cannot achieve the expected results. Even individuals with an otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging from pregnancy, aging, significant fluctuations in weight, heredity, and prior surgery.
That is where abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can be utilized to provide an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. Abdominoplasty involves eliminating excess skin and fat tissue from the lower abdomen, the repositioning of muscle tissue so that it is firmer and more taut, and the repositioning of skin to reduce or eliminate sagging tissue. However, this type of body contouring surgery is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program, but it can significantly refine the appearance of the lower abdomen and correct drooping skin and fat tissue.
