A Tummy Tuck removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen. A Tummy Tuck tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall and dramatically improves the appearance of a protruding abdomen.
After pregnancy, women have a hard time strengthening these muscles after a pregnancy has stretched their abdomen to the limit. Weight loss can cause loose skin in the abdominal area, which may be extremely hard to get rid of by exercise. Some tummy tucks can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
