Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a procedure that treats very loose skin and muscles on the abdomen, mostly after a large increase in body weight or a large weight loss.
Excess skin and fatty tissue in the abdominal area can represent a great aesthetic and psychological burden, but it can also lead to significant health problems.
Modern abdominoplasty is most often combined with liposuction, which simultaneously corrects the contours of the waist and loins.
Abdominoplasty is an acceptable method if diet and exercise cannot correct severe muscle relaxation, which usually occurs after several pregnancies. The emphasis of abdominoplasty is on body contouring, and the procedure is ideally performed after targeted weight loss (through reduced food intake and exercise).
