Who doesn’t long for a flat and firm abdomen? Who doesn’t want the belly that will not fall out while sitting? Or who doesn’t want to fit comfortably into clothing? You’ve tried many ways to lose the stubborn fat deposit and saggy skin around your belly. You have chosen the stairs over the elevator, stopped eating fast-food. Unfortunately, all these did not work.
For some people, to have a flat abdomen is not a reachable target even if they regularly exercise or eat healthy. Dieting and working out alone may not diminish the fat deposits around the abdominal area. Therefore, many men and women undergo tummy tuck to have a tighter and slimmer tummy and waist.
So what is Tummy Tuck?
Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a type of plastic surgery that involves reforming the waistline and removing the saggy skin and fat deposit around the abdominal area. The aim of the tummy tuck operation is to reform and reshape sagging and loose abdomen. Tummy tuck is not used as a way of losing weight or a treatment of obesity.
