Abdominoplasty is performed to reshape the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat that does not reduce following exercise and diet. Abdominoplasty is used to reduce the bulging of the lower abdomen following pregnancy or weight loss. It is performed to reshape the lower abdomen to an aesthetic youthful appearance and boost self-esteem.
As we age, loss of skin elasticity and muscle strength combined with fatty deposits in the lower abdomen cause this area to bulge. Pregnancy, especially multiple and twins, clearly accelerate these changes as well as weaken the abdominal muscles. A Tummy Tuck can remove the excess skin and fat and tighten the muscles to achieve a more youthful, flat and firm abdomen. It also produce a lifting of the groin and perineal region to provide some rejuvenation and improved cosmetic appearance.
