The Tummy Tuck is a popular body contouring procedure for both men and women who are unhappy with their mid-section appearance and have been unable to achieve the results they desire through diet and exercise alone. The mid-section is a notoriously tricky area, particularly when it comes to patients who have achieved a weight loss, or women who have had multiple pregnancies. Sagging, excess skin the mid-section can make many people feel very self-conscious and frustrated, as it cannot be improved through any method other than surgical intervention. Women who have been pregnant may find their abdominal muscles have become loosened and appear distended. The Tummy Tuck procedure can tighten those abdominal muscles, as well as remove excess, sagging skin to create a more toned mid-section appearance.
In some cases, the tummy tuck may be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction (when there is also a concern about stubborn pockets of fat in the area) or as part of a mommy makeover with a breast augmentation or breast lift.
