Diet and physical exercise can go a long way in achieving the appearance you desire. But, you may discover that certain problem areas persist. One of these common “problem areas” is the abdomen. Though losing weight and physical exercise are important for your overall health they might not be able to get the results you want in this area. Saggy skin is one of the top common problems treated with a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery treatment that improves the shape of the abdomen. A tummy tuck flattens the midsection by removing fat and improving abdominal muscles by tightening them. The end goal is that the area is flat and firmer. As your body heals from surgery, the transformation becomes more and more noticeable. Your cosmetic surgeon works with you hand in hand to plan the path to make it to your goals for this part of your body.
