The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) improves the waistline by tightening the abdominal muscles. It can also be used to remove or improve the appearance of stretch marks. The tummy tuck is especially suited for men and women who have excess skin concentrated in the abdominal area, but who are otherwise of relative normal weight.
For some patients, a “mini” tummy tuck which uses tiny incisions to create powerful change will be all that is necessary to achieve a flatter, tighter tummy and abdomen. Patients’ needs are unique and a consultation will help determine if a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck is right for you.
