Abdominoplasty, AKA a tummy tuck, was designed to flatten a protruding abdomen through the tightening of abdominal wall muscles and removal of excess fatty tissue and skin. However, this procedure is not a substitute for weight loss; it is meant to improve the shape of the body by narrowing and flattening the abdomen. Because of this, the ideal candidate for a tummy tuck is an individual of normal weight who suffers from weak abdominal muscles and excess skin and fat in the abdominal region.
Tummy tucks are invasive procedures, so they typically require 7-10 days of recovery time plus several weeks of wearing compression garments. After your recovery is complete, though, we guarantee you will experience a new-found confidence in your body and yourself.
