The tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is designed to give women a narrower, firmer, and flatter abdomen. Tummy tucks are meant to tighten the abdominal muscles and overlying skin that has been stretched during pregnancy, age and weight gain and loss. The procedure is an excellent option for patients who have a protruding abdomen with excess skin, especially as a result of dramatic weight loss or pregnancy. Dr. Jennifer Giuffre may combine your tummy tuck with liposuction to provide a contoured desired stomach shape to flatter the your figure.
