Abdominoplasty or Surgery of the Abdomen

Tummy Tuck

 

Generally referred to as a "tummy tuck", abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen.  The tummy tuck procedure offered at The Reed Center, also helps to flatten the abdomen by tightening the surrounding muscles.  Women with stretched abdominal areas due to previous pregnancies can benefit considerably from abdominoplasty, although they should have completed their childbearing.  Older individuals whose skin has lost some of its elasticity and are slightly obese can experience an improvement in their abdominal area.

 

If you are in generally good physical shape but are concerned about abdominal fat deposits or loose skin that does not respond to diet and exercise, the procedure can potentially reduce or even eliminate a protruding abdomen.  Abdominoplasty can produce a permanent scar which can possibly extend to both sides of your hips, although the scar will likely be located below the bikini or bathing suit line.
