What is Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure which is performed in order to remove excess adipose tissue and skin from the abdominal area. Several times, if necessary, along with tummy tuck the deep muscular structures of the abdominal wall are also reconstructed. Consequently, loose skin is reduced and the muscular structures of the abdominal wall are strengthened.
Several times, even people with normal body index (BMI) or people who exercice regularly, can have overhanging lower abdominal skin or prominent abdomen.
The most common causes are the following:
- Significant weight fluctuations
- Natural aging process
It should be noted that tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is not a slimming method or substitute for an appropriate personal training.
