The Tummy Tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is commonly performed on both men and women of various ages to improve the abdominal region. Women often seek out the Tummy Tuck, also called an Abdominoplasty, after pregnancy has left their abdominal muscles stretched out and left excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. Both men and women use the Tummy Tuck to remove excess, sagging skin in the mid-section after a significant weight loss. There are a few different types of Tummy Tuck surgery, some more invasive than others, depending on the amount of rejuvenation required to achieve the desired results. Some people struggle with stubborn fat in the area that is not responsive to diet and exercise and they may combine the Tummy Tuck procedure with Liposuction to target and remove fat in the area.

Tummy Tuck surgery, with the traditional technique, is performed through an incision that runs across the lower abdomen from hip to hip. A “Mini” Tummy Tuck is performed with a smaller incision, for a smaller rejuvenation.
