Tummy tuck surgery (Abdominoplasty) is a procedure used to give you a tighter, flatter stomach and reduce the appearance of stretch marks on your lower abdomen. This type of surgery is performed on patients who have skin and abdominal wall slackness after pregnancy or significant weight loss. Abdominoplasty surgery offers a solution by flattening the slack skin and tightening the muscles of the relaxed tummy wall, and if needed, excess subcutaneous fatty tissue can be removed as well. The operation can remove folds of skin left behind after losing a lot of weight, and tighten stretched skin and muscles after pregnancy in women who don't plan to have another baby. Tummy tuck surgery not only results in a better appearance and function, but it also stops the slackening process of the abdominal wall. The results can be long-lasting, expecially if you exercise, eat a healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight after your operation. Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for losing weight through regular physical activity and a healthy, balanced diet, and cannot be used for weight control.
