Men and women who have experienced dramatic weight loss, either through diet and exercise, or as a result of bariatric surgery, often have excess amounts of skin around the abdomen. Women can also experience this condition as a result of pregnancy, making the abdomen soft and flabby. A tummy tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty, can remove excess folds of skin and tighten your abdominal muscles to create a lean, flat and more well-defined stomach. It can also diminish unsightly stretch marks.
Because diet and exercise cannot remove the excess skin, abdominoplasty is the perfect solution to tone and refine the abdomen. The effects of tummy tuck can be long lasting, provided you exercise regularly, eat a sensible diet, and maintain a suitable weight level.

Tummy Tuck Recovery
Tummy tucks are major abdominal surgery performed with general anesthesia. After awaking, the patient feels groggy and tired for several days. The area may be covered in surgical dressings or a compression garment, and there will also be fluid drains and sutures to contend with. Your abdomen will feel swollen and sore. Bruising and redness are also common. These side effects generally take one to three weeks to subside. During this time, follow your surgeon’s aftercare instructions to reduce swelling, promote healing, and support the tissues as they adjust to their new contours. Most patients are able to return to work in about two weeks, though strenuous activities must be avoided for six weeks or more.
