Major changes to your body often leave marks on your abdomen. Pregnancy or weight loss can leave you with loose skin and fat that refuse to budge. A tummy tuck can restore a smoother, flatter stomach and repair abdominal muscles. As a result, your abdomen looks better and feels stronger.
What is a Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty?
Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, addresses loose abdominal skin and fat. Dr. Tenley Lawton performs tummy tucks in her Newport Beach outpatient surgical suite. This procedure uses an incision hidden as low as possible on the abdomen to remove excess skin. The incision also lets Dr. Lawton repair your abdominal muscles. These muscles, which can stretch and separate, form part of your abdominal core, and repairing them can have significant benefits.
