The abdomen is an area of the body that is notoriously difficult to keep tight and firm. Even with a healthy lifestyle and good diet, there are factors like aging, pregnancy and changes in body shape that create sagging skin. For those who are looking to achieve a firm, flat stomach or tighten loosened abdominal muscles, the tummy tuck may be right for you.
The tummy tuck, technically known as the abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that gives patients a tightened stomach. The procedure is performed by making a horizontal incision from hip to hip. This allows for excess skin to be pulled downward and removed. The belly button is repositioned to fit with your flatter stomach and the incision is closed.
To learn more about how the tummy tuck can give you a flatter stomach, speak with Dr. Navid Alizadeh.
