Pregnancy, large weight fluctuations, aging and genetic factors can cause your tummy to become loose, sagging and protruding.
A tummy tuck creates an abdominal profile that is flatter, firmer and more in a proportion with your body type and weight.
Excess skin and fat are removed and the separated muscles are repaired/ brought back together. Stretch marks that are below your belly button will also be removed in this procedure.
If you are planning to become pregnant or to loose substantial weight rather postpone your tummy tuck as it is not a weight loss procedure and you should be close to your ideal/stable weight.
Some patients might only require a mini-abdominoplasty. Seeing that your build is unique, the different options, applicable to you, will be discussed during your consultation.
