A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscles and/or removes excess tissue and sagging skin from the abdomen.
Many women opt for this procedure after they have children and their skin has been overstretched. Another reason patients have a tummy tuck is because of a significant weight loss (excess tissue will still be present). Summit Plastic Surgery Fort Wayne offers different options for tummy tucks depending on how much excess tissue that you may need removed.
Tummy tucks may last 2-5 hours depending on which procedure you have performed.
