A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) plastic surgery procedure is to remove excess fat and skin from the abdominal area. It can also help to restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles. There are many causes for loose or sagging skin in the abdominal area, including:
- Weight Gain/Loss
- Hereditary Predisposition
- Prior Surgery
The results of a Tummy Tuck procedure are permanent. The abdominal muscles will remain firm and tight following the procedure, and excess skin removed won't come back. It is possible for events such as future pregnancies or weight fluctuations to affect the results of a Tummy Tuck. During your appointment, we will discuss the likelihood of these situations and how best to minimize their effect on the results of your procedure.
