What is Abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, involves removing fat and excess skin, tightening the surrounding abdominal muscles and suturing the remaining skin closed. Liposuction may also be used during this procedure.

Is Abdominoplasty Right For You?

Abdominoplasty is not right for everyone. An ideal candidate should be in good health and have been at a steady, normal-range weight for several months. In addition to being healthy, you should also possess healthy aspirations and a desire to learn healthy living habits including sustained diet and exercise. You should also not have unrealistic expectations and not be undergoing this procedure for anyone but yourself.

A good candidate for abdominoplasty:

  • An abdomen that protrudes and is out of proportion with your body
  • Sagging or excess skin in the abdominal area
  • Weakened abdominal muscles
  • Excess fatty tissue in the abdominal area

Abdominoplasty is not a weight-loss procedure; it is used to restore a more youthful contour in the abdominal area. If you believe that a tummy tuck is right for you, talking to your plastic surgeon is the first step in finding out more about this procedure and its potential results. Finding the right plastic surgeon is all about experience and trust.
