A tummy tuck, or Abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.

A tummy tuck is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.
