A tummy tuck—also known as abdominoplasty—is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen while also tightening and/or repairing the abdominal muscles, as needed. This can produce a variety of functional and aesthetic benefits, including a flatter abdomen, improved posture, elimination of excess skin and fat, and enhanced abdominal contours. A tummy tuck can also help repair diastasis recti, a condition where the abdominal muscles become separated—often as a result of pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or overexertion while exercising. This makes it a popular inclusion in mommy makeover—also known as mommy restorations—and post-weight loss body contouring.
Our Nashville plastic surgeon, Amaka Nwubah, MD, has extensive experience performing abdominoplasties, including an advanced drainless technique.
