Tummy
Tuck
Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging can lead to loose skin on the abdomen, stretched abdominal muscles, and excess fat in the midsection. Often, no amount of diet and exercise can correct these conditions, leaving many people feeling defeated despite their best efforts. Tummy tuck surgery creates a more toned and slender abdomen by removing excess tissue and tightening the abdominal muscles. This procedure provides patients with increased confidence and an improved body image, which can positively influence many aspects of their lives.

Tummy Tuck Surgery
Taut,
Smooth Skin
Stretched skin on the abdomen can be physically and emotionally irritating. It can rub beneath clothing and cause rashes, and its wrinkled, unattractive appearance can be embarrassing. Tummy tuck surgery eliminates loose, hanging skin to restore a smooth, youthful abdominal appearance.
Toned
Abdominals
Over time, changes in the body can cause the abdominal muscles to become stretched and loose beyond any repair that crunches or other core exercises can achieve. Tummy tuck surgery tightens the abdominal wall muscles by suturing them together to create a toned, flat abdomen.
A Slender
Midsection
Excess fat naturally accumulates in the midsection, and this is one of the hardest areas to improve even with a strict diet and exercise regimen. Tummy tuck surgery is often combined with liposuction to eliminate excess fat and produce more slender, attractive curves.
More
Confidence
With the physical improvements achieved by tummy tuck surgery, the majority of patients experience a boost in confidence knowing that they look more youthful and attractive. This boost in self-esteem can enhance many components of your life and will likely improve your overall quality of life.
