Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is an effective and safe operation performed to improve the abdominal contour by removing excess skin and fat, and tightening the abdominal muscles. The procedure slims and tightens the midsection to reestablish a youthful waistline.
Abdominoplasty is done as an outpatient under general anesthesia at one of our nationally certified office surgery centers. Recovery is moderately quick. Most patients can return to light office work as early as two weeks. Patients are especially pleased since this operation corrects conditions they cannot correct on their own with exercising and dieting.
