Once stretched by pregnancy or weight gain, the abdomen often fails to return to its original shape. Stretched beyond the capacity to return to normal, these tissues will also fail to respond to exercise or diet programs. In these cases, abdominoplasty can provide a long-lasting solution. Abdominoplasty is a frequently performed procedure used to tighten overly stretched abdominal muscles and skin for a smoother, flatter appearance.

If fat, skin, and muscle all need to be corrected, Tummy Tuck would give the best result. This procedure involves lifting the loose abdominal skin, tightening the muscles, and removing the excess skin and fat. This creates a flat belly and a tighter waistline.

While Tummy Tuck can yield very dramatic changes, it requires leaving a scar around the belly button and another one horizontally above the pubic hair. A patient considering this procedure should consult with me as to whether a tummy tuck or liposuction is the appropriate method of treatment.
