Pregnancy, obesity, significant weight loss, or weight changes contribute to the buildup of excess fat and loose skin in the abdominal area. To get rid of weakened tummy muscles and to eliminate excess fatty tissue and skin, tummy tuck serves as the best option. The procedure is ideal for those who have excessive fat deposits or sagging skin around the abdomen, despite following strict diet and exercise programs.

There are many experienced surgeons providing tummy tucks on a regular basis. It is essential to choose an experienced and board certified plastic surgeon to ensure the best aesthetic results. Not everyone is a good candidate for surgical intervention. A tummy tuck surgeon can determine whether you are a candidate for the surgery. Your surgeon would also give a clear idea about the different options available for performing the procedure.
