A flat and well-toned abdomen is something you may strive for through exercise and weight control. Often these methods cannot achieve your goal. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. You'll like looking in the mirror again!
A tummy tuck procedure is highly individualized and Dr. Merkel will consult with you regarding the best method of performing the procedure and talk with you about your goals and expectations. Although excess fat and skin are removed, a tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate weight loss program, but can help smooth and firm your abdomen and improve your self-confidence and body image.
