Medically, it’s called an abdominoplasty. Regardless of what you call it, tummy tuck surgery has many benefits. It can give you a flatter, well-toned appearance in the abdomen where skin might be loose and sagging. If other methods don’t help, such as diet, exercise or skin treatments, you might consider this surgery.
A tummy tuck can correct the effects on your abdomen from age, pregnancy, prior surgery and fluctuations in weight. It’s important to note, however, that a tummy tuck is permanent, so women considering future pregnancies or those who are planning substantial weight loss should wait to have the procedure.
