The abdominoplasty, also called “tummy tuck”, is a great surgery for those who have excess tummy fat, loose skin, and weak abdominal muscles. It is most common in women after childbirth, but also popular in both men and women who’ve lost weight. The main goal of a tummy tuck is to remove excess abdominal fat (often using liposuction), get rid of excess, sagging skin, and tighten the “ab” muscles.
Fat deposits in the waistline and love-handles can be difficult to lose, even with the best diet or intensive training program. Loose abdominal skin can make it difficult to find clothing that fits well and can even interfere with daily activities!
If you are considering a tummy tuck, reaching your ideal weight (or as close as possible) before the surgery often leads to the best results. If, on the other hand, you have no loose skin but only excess fat then you may benefit from liposuction alone.
