Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, is a plastic surgery operation that tightens the abdominal muscles and removes extra skin and fat to achieve a perfectly shaped abdomen. A tummy tuck not only removes excess belly fat but also removes extra skin.
Because of pregnancy or significant weight increases, the skin that protects the stomach will stretch out. A tummy tuck will keep the impression of a flat and contoured waist.
If the rectus abdominus, or sit-up muscles, have been strained or removed as a result of pregnancy, this procedure may include reassembling them.
