An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is an operation designed to remove excess skin and fat from this area, and tighten the underlying musculature, in order to improve the shape and contour of the abdomen. It is commonly performed in ladies who have excess skin after pregnancy, or in patients who have had significant weight loss and have extra skin in this area.
