You might have attempted healthy eating and physical exercise, but still be dissatisfied with the appearance of your abdominal area. Though losing weight and physical exercise are important for your overall health they might not be able to achieve the results you wish in this area. Sagging skin is one of the top common things treated with a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that improves the shape of the abdomen. A tummy tuck flattens the stomach by removing fat and improving abdominal muscles by making them tighter. The end result is that the area is flat and firmer. Changes become even more noticeable as your body heals from the surgery and are permanent. Your plastic surgeon works with you hand in hand to plan the road to make it to your desired result for this part of your appearance.
