Staring down at a flabby stomach and love handles can get old. Diet and exercise may not be enough to get rid of these problems, but a tummy tuck will do the trick.

The basis of every tummy tuck procedure is the alteration (typically removal) of tissue in the abdominal area. In order to change underlying tissues, an incision must be made.

The tummy tuck begins with the creation of a single horizontal incision on the abdomen, stretching from one hipbone to the other hipbone. It is made at the pubic hairline.
