Dr. Robert Cohen
Abdominoplasty is designed to tighten abdominal muscles and remove loose skin and fat, which provides a flatter, more sculpted stomach. Abdominal muscles can become stretched out during pregnancy or as a result of significant weight gain. Stretched out muscles provides less support and allows the internal organs to bulge out, giving the belly a fuller appearance.
The stretching of the abdominal wall and skin can occur individually or in combination, and will not improve with exercise or sit-ups. Luckily, for patients with these problems, Dr. Cohen is able to flatten and tighten their abdomen with a tummy tuck.
