The tummy tuck procedure can dramatically change the appearance of the “sagging abdomen” and create a more aesthetical silhouette in the waist area for both men and women. Results of an abdominoplasty are long-term when followed by regular exercise and a well-balanced diet. An abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia.
If the fat distribution is confined to the area around the navel, a less demanding procedure will be sufficient, called a partial abdominoplasty. In some cases, a combination of partial/complete abdominoplasty and liposuction may be more beneficial, which can remove fat from the hips, thereby improving the body contours.
