Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) corrects skin-muscle adhesions but not organ or pelvic intra-abdominal adhesions
Adhesions, from a medical standpoint, refer to scar bands inside the abdominal or pelvic cavity. However, we also refer to adhesions of the skin to the underlying muscle (which is outside the abdominal cavity). A tummy tuck will remove the latter and not the former. Pardon the simple analogy but it is like looking at your bed, tightening the sheets may remove the folds and wrinkles but it won't correct a lumpy mattress.
