The stomach and abdominal area can be one of the most difficult areas of the body to keep taut and firm. Aging, pregnancy and considerable weight loss can all contribute to the appearance of a sagging stomach. However, with a tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, there is a solution.
The abdominopolasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to trim away and remove excess skin. In addition, the loose muscles under the skin are surgically tightened in order to create a smooth, flat, tight stomach. The abdominoplasty is an out-patient procedure that involves general anesthesia and typically takes two to three hours.
To learn more about the abdominoplasty and other surgeries that may accompany it, consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Kulick.
