After pregnancy, it is common for the abdominal muscles and skin to be stretched. When this happens, neither exercise nor weight loss will help, and additional weight loss can even accentuate the problem. A tummy tuck helps women and men achieve a flat stomach.
Abdominoplasty is designed to flatten your abdomen by removing excess fat and skin, and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure usually takes about 2 1/2 hours and is almost always performed under general anesthesia.
