Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, removes excess fat and skin to give you a narrow waist with a flat abdomen. The surgery is frequently performed after pregnancy or weight loss when the skin has become stretched or saggy.
Barring another pregnancy or significant weight gain, your results should be permanent, although plastic surgery will not prevent the effects of normal aging.
If you have flab or excess skin in your abdomen area that does not improve with diet or exercise, then consider a tummy tuck procedure. If you are in good general health, a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
