Often, even despite the best-intentioned diet and exercise, a flat stomach just isn’t naturally achievable. As you age and your weight fluctuates, your stomach muscles become more lax and the well-toned abdomen you hope for may be beyond your reach, regardless of how many crunches you do. Or, if you have gained and lost a large amount of weight – whether due to pregnancy or lifestyle changes – you may be experiencing loose or sagging skin that just won’t go away.
It’s no secret that the stomach is one of the most universal trouble areas and a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can help patients achieve the flat stomach they covet. By tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin in the upper and lower abdomen, a tummy tuck can improve the definition and appearance of your stomach.
