DR. DAVID PASSARETTI: An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures for both women and men. In this procedure sagging skin and excess fat are removed in order to create a tighter, thinner abdomen. Stretch marks resulting from pregnancy or prior weight gain may be removed, while the weakened muscles underneath are tightened. Most patients have liposuction at the same time as their tummy tuck. Liposuction assists in contouring the waist and hips, giving you the best possible shape after your abdominoplasty.
