A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a type of aesthetic procedure that can rectify several problems in the abdominal region. Because the plastic surgeon has access to the skin, fat, and muscle tissue, they can remove and alter these tissues to create a trim, sculpted look.

Sometimes, the only issue with the abdominal area is excess hanging skin. When excess fat is not a problem and the ab muscles are not loose enough to require corrective surgery, a skin only tummy tuck will be enough to correct the area. Otherwise, a regular abdominoplasty will be necessary.

Regardless of the type of abdominal fix you’re looking for, the first step for an abdominoplasty will be finding the right plastic surgeon for the procedure.
