Tummy tuck surgery—also referred to as abdominoplasty—is a cosmetic procedure performed to eliminate lax, excess skin and repair stretched and/or separated abdominal musculature for a tighter, more toned abdomen.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.
Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
• Aging• Heredity
• Prior surgery
• Significant fluctuations in weight
