What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty), is a surgical procedure that creates a slimmer, more contoured stomach by removing excess fat, skin, and other tissue. Doctors remove a section of skin and fat from the abdomen, tighten the abdominal muscles, and then bring the new edges of the incision together, leaving a smooth, taut result.

Your belly may sag due to genetic factors, pregnancies, previous procedures, fluctuations in weight, and/or aging. A tummy tuck can also tighten weakened muscles for a flatter, firmer profile. This is especially valuable for patients with movement or activity limitations that make it difficult to exercise.

Abdominoplasty differs from other body slimming procedures like liposuction, though they are often performed together. While liposuction can be used to remove fat from various areas (e.g., thighs, stomach, chin, buttocks, etc.), a tummy tuck is only used to slim the midsection. However, liposuction cannot correct sagging skin, cellulite, or weakened stomach muscles.

An Abdominoplasty Can:

  • Help you fit more comfortably in clothing
  • Reduce bladder leakage (a common symptom in both men and women, especially women who have had multiple children or are post-menopausal)

How a Tummy Tuck Works

In addition to the surgery itself, getting a tummy tuck also involves a period of preparation and recovery. If you decide to have an abdominoplasty, you can expect to progress through three stages: consultation, surgery, and recovery.
