Excess skin and fat can be problematic when it develops around the abdomen. It typically doesn’t respond well to dieting or exercise and can seriously undermine your self-confidence. Those who are looking for a flatter, tighter abdomen may be a candidate for a tummy tuck.

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to flatten the stomach. Typically, the extra flab that droops around the belly is caused by aging, pregnancy or drastic changes in weight. Having poor skin elasticity can also contribute to the development of sagging skin. The tummy tuck involves incisions to remove excess tissue, resulting in a flatter stomach.
