Surgical Techniques
Diet and exercise sometimes do little to eliminate unwanted fat and loose skin in the abdominal area. If you are concerned by these problems, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) may be a good choice for you. Abdominoplasty is performed to remove excess skin and to tighten the weak abdominal wall muscles. This is frequently present in women following childbirth.
