Aging, pregnancy and weight fluctuations can take a toll on your skin’s elasticity. Sometimes, excess skin can sag and droop over the stomach, leaving you with a pooch of extra skin that can undermine your self-confidence. Tummy tucks can be the ideal solution for those who are looking to flatten and tighten their stomachs.

There are a range of different tummy tucks, but in general, they are designed to flatten and tighten the stomach. The classic tummy tuck involves an incision along the lower abdomen below the belly button. The extra skin is cut loose and the remaining skin is pulled taut. The incision is closed with sutures, leaving a flatter, tighter abdomen. The procedure is performed with general or local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michelle Place to learn more about tummy tucks.
