Tummy Tuck Surgery – Abdominoplasty

After giving birth or after significant weight loss, an excess of skin can create a sagging, creasy (striate) abdominal wall sometimes referred to as an ‘apron’, which can cause health issues and lower a patient’s self-confidence. In cases where the excess skin of the abdominal wall inhibits corrective results using liposuction, tummy tuck surgery may provide the desired outcome.

Both excess skin and fatty tissues are removed simultaneously during surgery, and there is a possibility to strengthen weakened abdominal muscles by performing an abdominal hernia reconstruction.
