An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) aims to give you a smoother, flatter tummy by removing excess skin and fat.
The tissue is usually removed as an oval shape from the lower part of the tummy, leaving a scar that runs from hip to hip, just above the pubic hair line. There is also a scar around the belly button. As well as removing skin and fat, the muscles on the inside are tightened to correct any underlying weakness. The “Brazilian Tummy Tuck” is a combination of liposuction and skin/fat removal.
