Multiple pregnancies, rapid weight fluctuations and inherited traits can contribute to loose, sagging skin, fat deposits and stretch marks on the stomach and midsection. Unfortunately, diet and exercise cannot offer relief from these symptoms. This often haunts women for years, compromising their confidence and affecting their quality of life. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can restore the abdomen to its original appearance.

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure designed to remove sagging skin and fat and even tighten muscles in the abdominal wall. Generally, there are two types of tummy tuck procedures: a full and a mini.

A full tummy tuck addresses a wider range of the abdomen and is more extensive, whereas the mini tummy tuck typically focuses on the area below the belly button.
