Tummy Tuck [ Abdominoplasty ]
Are you constantly on a mission to get your tummy taut and toned? Sometimes all the exercise and dieting in the world can't get rid of a tummy that's showing the results of weight fluctuations, loose skin and/or the effects of pregnancy. Common changes to the midsection, like sagging skin, stretch marks and even muscle separation, which are typical of pregnancy can cause permanent damage. But, a tummy tuck procedure is not limited only for postpartum women. Tummy tuck surgery—or abdominoplasty—can improve the appearance of excess abdominal fat, skin and give a more streamlined stomach. Individual conditions of the abdomen vary, and for that reason there are different tummy-tucking techniques to help you achieve a flatter, trimmer waistline.
