TUMMY TUCK (ABDOMINOPLASTY) OVERVIEW
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. Out of all the procedures we perform at Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, the tummy tuck is one of the most gratifying for both the patient and surgeon, because it provides such a drastic change is such a quick time.

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. When there is extra skin in the abdominal area, no amount of exercise or weight loss can get rid of the skin. Even individuals with normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or with skin that is loose and sagging.
The most common causes of this include:
A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies should probably postpone a tummy tuck.
Also, a tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks, although the majority may be removed if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised, generally those areas below the belly button.
