A tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of the abdomen by surgically removing excess fat and skin. There are many reasons why you might be interested in a private tummy tuck—from the changes your body goes through during pregnancy, to aging, to your natural body shape. But is diarrhea right for you?
A tummy tuck is also called a tummy tuck. This is a surgical procedure designed to flatten the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. It also tones the muscles of the abdominal wall. While a tummy tuck can be done for cosmetic purposes, you should carefully consider this primary procedure before deciding to have a tummy tuck. It is important to note that a tummy tuck is not the same as liposuction. These two cosmetic procedures are sometimes performed together.
After pregnancy or weight loss, excess skin and fat can distort the appearance of your belly. Especially after giving birth to a second child or twins, many women find that their muscles and skin cannot return to their original appearance due to repeated abdominal stretching. Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” creates a flatter, firmer stomach by removing excess fat and skin and tightening abdominal muscles. If you’re a stable weight, fit, have realistic expectations, and don’t smoke, you’re an ideal candidate for a tummy tuck.
The abdominal wall is made up of skin, fat, and muscle. The rectus abdominis muscle that makes up the “six pack” is covered by a tough covering called the rectus fascia. This layer of fascia usually weakens and expands with pregnancy and weight gain. Therefore, once a patient loses weight or has a baby, she may develop abdominal flaccidity. During the procedure, the fascia layer over the rectus abdominis is tightened and excess skin and fat are removed.
