Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) before and after from one of our plastic surgery patients at Aesthetic Medicine.
An abdominoplasty is the removal of loose, excess skin and fat of the lower abdomen. The "tummy tuck” is frequently performed after the completion of pregnancies. Following childbirth, the stretched skin and muscle rarely returns completely back to normal. Skin may hang, abdominal muscles may be slack and provide less back support, and neither can be improved by exercise. Stretch marks are permanent (creams and/or lasers have yet to be proven as reliable treatment), and are removed, only when the skin is excised.
Other patients, who have excess skin as the result from weight-loss surgery, or diet and exercise, can benefit from removing the “apron of skin.”
