Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat, skin, and in most cases, repairs weak abdominal muscles – creating a smoother and firmer stomach profile.

This procedure also aims to get rid of striae (stretch marks), to reposition the navel and tighten the abdominal muscles in order to achieve a flatter and firmer stomach.

The method is to make an incision in the lower abdomen. After being sliced, fats in the area are removed along with excess skins, usually starting from the lower abdomen to slightly above the navel.

With the return of those muscles to its original place, the stomach will look thinner. Then a new navel is made through an incision around the abdomen in the same exact location as before. So that the navel that had been “lost” was rejuvenated. And because some of the abdominal skin is removed, strial (stretch marks / white streaks that usually appear on the stomach of women who have been pregnant) will disappear.
