Tummy Tuck

The Tummy Tuck is an operation that is designed to remove excess skin from the abdomen at the same time, tightening the abdominal muscles. It is indicated in cases where there is laxity of the abdomen resulting in bulging due to abnormal stretching of the abdominal muscles and skin. The actual extent of surgery will depend on the amount of excess skin and the laxity of the abdominal muscles. Prior to Tummy Tuck surgery, the amount of skin that is to be removed is carefully marked and the operation is usually carried out under general anesthesia.
