An abdominoplasty is commonly known as a tummy tuck. This procedure is performed to improve the shape of the abdomen, or tummy, by removing excess skin and fat. This procedure is helpful following weight loss or after having children.
There are a number of reasons why patients may need a tummy tuck. The most common reasons for this is following pregnancy or weight loss. During pregnancy, the growing baby causes stretching of the skin and muscles of the abdomen. Once the baby is born, some redundant skin and muscle wall weakness may persist. The procedure can help tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall and remove that redundant skin. Patients that have lost a significant amount of weight may also experience some redundant skin. This can be combined with a breast procedure and is called a Mummy Makeover.
