A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that reshapes and tightens the abdominal area. During the procedure the abdominal muscles are tightened while excess skin and fat is removed and the belly button repositioned leaving the abdominal area flatter and more toned.
During your initial consultation the surgeon examines the areas of your body in focus while you explain your goals for surgery. The surgeon will make recommendations for you based on your physical needs and aesthetic desires.
Also known as: Abdominoplasty
