Yes, but the procedure is not without risk. The majority of abdominoplasty patients do not have any complications. Abdominoplasty can achieve some of the most dramatic results in plastic surgery, but its transformative power is offset by a significant level of risk. But careful planning and proper technique can significantly reduce these risks.
A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the abdomen. During the tummy tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen. The connective tissue (fascia) in the abdomen is usually also tightened with sutures. The remaining skin is then repositioned for a more toned look. If you have excess fat or skin around your belly button, or if your lower abdominal wall is weak, you may choose to have a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck can also improve your body image.
