What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck procedure is also referred to as an abdominoplasty. The procedure is designed to improve the appearance of the midsection. An abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat to create a flattened belly before recontouring the midsection. Unlike the mini tummy tuck that treats the abdominal area below the belly button, a full tummy tuck treats the entire abdomen.
People with excessive amounts of fat and skin on their abdomen may be candidates for a tummy tuck. However, a tummy tuck is not the ideal solution for everyone. The best candidates for a tummy tuck are people who meet the following conditions:
- In good health
- Not significantly overweight
It is important for patients to stop smoking at least six weeks prior to undergoing a tummy tuck.
Considering these factors, an abdominoplasty is a successful way for adults to deal with the effects that aging, pregnancy, weight loss and excessive skin has on the abdomen.
