Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

tummy tuck, abdominoplasty, costAbdominoplasty, also known as a Tummy Tuck removes excess fat and skin, and restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include: Pregnancy, Aging, Significant fluctuations in weight, Heredity, or Prior surgery. Although the results of a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) procedure are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies may be advised to postpone Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) surgery.
