Every woman is in search of a flat, firm tummy. Even strenuous exercise may not give you the look you want. Abdominoplasty, also known as the “Tummy Tuck,” removes excess skin and tightens underlying muscles, resulting in a flatter, firmer, tighter stomach and a thinner waistline. Liposuction is performed in combination with abdominoplasty in indicated areas. This is used particularly to contour the waist, hip, and pubic regions, which complements the improved contour of the abdomen.
