The Tummy Tuck is a popular procedure because of its capacity for slenderizing the midsection by;
- Tightening the loose abdominal muscles( recreating the internal corset, narrowing the waist).
- Removing extra skin
- Reshaping the belly button
The tummy tuck procedure can also eliminate the previous scars from hysterectomy, laparoscopy or even appendix removal surgery.
Although the incision required for tummy tuck surgery is longer than with other cosmetic surgery procedures, the resulting scar typically starts very, very low across the lower abdomen just above or into the pubic hair area. It usually can be easily hidden by a modest bikini or undergarment.
