It’s common for women who have given birth to experience some significant changes in their body shape, especially around the abdomen. Unfortunately, these structural changes are rarely fixed by exercise and dieting alone. Sagging skin and belly bulges usually require more invasive interventions, like the tummy tuck.

The tummy tuck, also known as the abdominoplasty, is a combination of surgical procedures that can help flatten the abdomen and tighten skin. In addition, abdominal walls that have stretched out or separated during pregnancy can be surgically reattached. Without this correction, no amount of exercise can ever fully restore a flat stomach.

Excess skin and fat are removed as needed during the procedure, and the remaining skin is laid tight.

There are several variations of the tummy tuck depending on the specific needs of the patient. They can even choose between a full or mini version of the surgery.
