Tummy Tuck The abdominoplasty, more commonly known as the “tummy tuck,” is a cosmetic procedure that offers patients a chance to enhance the skin and muscles of their abdomen to appear smoother and firmer. A tummy tuck isn’t for everyone, and there are very specific issues that a tummy tuck is good for addressing.

A tummy tuck is a good option for those who are otherwise healthy with normal body weight but struggle with loose, sagging skin around the midsection. There are a variety of reasons that this can happen. Pregnancy, aging, massive weight loss, heredity and prior surgery can create a loose and sagging midsection where excess skin is left. Tummy tucks aren’t meant to take the place of healthy living or dieting.

The best way to determine how a tummy tuck can benefit you is to schedule a consultation with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michelle Place, who will be able to sit down with you and hash out the details of the procedure.
