Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck”, is designed to tighten the loose skin of the stomach and strengthen the muscles in the abdominal wall, literally “tucking” and strengthening your stomach. An abdominoplasty is often combined with liposuction for body sculpting purposes, to eliminate excess fat and skin.
