Approximate duration of surgery: 2 to 3 hours
An abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, removes excess fat and skin in order to restore weakened or separated muscles. A tummy tuck is usually performed after extreme weight loss, pregnancy, or in men with intra-abdominal fat accumulation. Best results for a tummy tuck are obtained when the patient has lost weight prior to surgery. If the patient desires an hourglass figure, the loosened abdominal fascia can be tightened internally. In some cases, a tummy tuck is also effective in eliminating stretch marks.
