Tummy Tuck Overview
Tummy tuck, aka abdominoplasty, removes excess skin from the stomach after pregnancy or weight loss, pulls in the abdomen, and corrects any bulge or separation of the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck does not usually result in significant weight loss.
While a tummy tuck addresses the full abdomen and removes up to 30 to 50% of the stomach skin, a mini tummy tuck uses a shorter incision to treat only the “pooch” area below the belly button.
