What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure where excess and residual fat and skin is removed from the abdominal and hip area. Results of a tummy tuck include a flatter stomach, smaller waist, and all around slimmer abdomen. The results of a tummy tuck can last a lifetime with proper exercise and a healthy diet.
How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure for individuals who may have sagging skin and loose abdominal muscles. Anesthesia is normally required for the procedure, which usually takes less than three hours. During the procedure, Dr. Rubinstein will make an incision across the bottom section of the abdomen and lift the skin to tighten the abdominal muscles eliminating excess skin and fat. The result of a tummy tuck is a tighter, smaller abdomen free of sagging skin.
