Dr. Francis R. Johns
A tummy tuck refers to a cosmetic procedure formally known as abdominoplasty, which is designed to help patients recontour and tone their abdomen. Pregnancy and weight loss can cause an excess of skin and fat to be carried on the abdomen. Additionally, the area's skin may exhibit unsightly stretch marks, often creating feelings of self-consciousness and embarrassment.
If diet and exercise have proven to be inadequate in correcting these problems, an abdominoplasty may be a consideration. There are a variety of procedures to sculpt the abdomen, which in differing ways, involve the removal of excess skin and fat. Dr. Johns can help you decide which tummy tuck procedure best suits your individual needs.
