A tight, flat stomach is a great achievement and at the top of the list for many people’s aesthetic goals. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most difficult to achieve. Not only does it require healthy living and exercise, there are also factors like aging, pregnancy and extreme weight loss that leave sagging skin on your stomach. However, with a tummy tuck, there is a way to achieve the body of your dreams.
A tummy tuck, technically known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical technique that gives patients a flatter, tighter abdomen. The procedure is also useful for treating hernias. The technique usually involves making a horizontal incision from hip to hip, just below the belly button. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining area is pulled downward to be made taut.
