What is Abdominoplasty : tummy tuck

An Overview

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as Tummy Tuck is a cosmetic and surgical procedure in which –

  • The loose, sagging skin on your stomach area is removed along with the excess fat

  • The purpose is to give you a firmer and flatter belly and a smaller waist size.
