Many people have excess fat and loose skin in their midsection that they can’t eliminate via normal diet and exercise. In these instances, a tummy tuck may be the best option. Abdominoplasty is designed to give individuals a sleeker, more defined abdomen by removing inches and pounds around the midsection.
During a tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Christopher Godek, our board-certified plastic surgeon at the Personal Enhancement Center, will remove excess, loose skin in the abdominal area and tighten the underlying muscles. The remaining skin is shifted down and pulled taut, resulting in a much flatter, firmer stomach.
The tummy tuck procedure can be very beneficial for patients who just can’t seem to get rid of that extra bit of skin in the abdominal area, as well as women who are having trouble firming up the midsection after pregnancy.
