Even with diet and physical exercise you might still find yourself not happy with the body of your abdomen. If you’re still not happy with the appearance of your abdomen, even after attempting everything, a tummy tuck might be a viable option. Sagging skin is one of the most common problems corrected with a tummy tuck. The purpose of a tummy tuck is to improve the overall shape of the stomach area. 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. As your body heals from surgery, the transformation becomes dramatically more noticeable. Your plastic surgeon works with you hand in hand to plan the road to make it to your goals for this part of your body.
