Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure to correct a relaxed abdomen and/or remove stretch marks in and around the umbilical region. Localised fat and excess skin are removed to obtain a flatter, firmer abdomen. This procedure is often accompanied by liposculpture to improve the overall appearance of the torso. A mini tummy tuck is a less invasive variant, designed to correct tissue sagging in the lower part of the abdomen.
The results of this type of surgery are highly satisfactory in patients who have suffered due to their appearance and to limitations caused by a sagging abdomen, such as difficulties regarding clothing and mobility or embarrassment when wearing a swimming costume. A tummy tuck tightens the abdomen and eliminates abdominal folds, so that more tight-fitting clothes, swimwear and sportswear can be worn with greater confidence, and allowing patients to recover agility and dynamism thanks to the loss of weight and volume. When combined with liposculpture, the whole torso area benefits from an improvement not only of the abdomen but also the hips.
