Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) is a surgical procedure that helps flatten the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles. The best candidates are in good physical condition with pockets of fat or loose skin that haven’t responded well to diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty can also be useful for women with stretched skin and muscles from pregnancy. The procedure takes approximately three to four hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Recovery time ranges from two to four weeks. Learn more about tummy tucks...
