What is a tummy tuck?
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck pulls the skin in the area taut and can tighten the abdominal muscles, making the tummy look and feel more firm and athletic. With good eating and exercise habits, the benefits of a tummy tuck can last for many years.
Mini tummy tuck
For patients with only moderate excess skin and fat, a mini tummy tuck might be a better option. This procedure typically eliminates the need to cut the navel, requires smaller incisions and shortens treatment and recovery times. Your OSU Wexner Medical Center plastic surgeon will help you determine if a mini tummy tuck is for you.
A tummy tuck can help you get a tighter, smoother abdomen
Recent pregnancy, weight loss, genetics and the natural aging process are some of the reasons why excess fat and skin form around your stomach. Men and women who have this extra fat and skin, but are otherwise in good physical condition, are typically good candidates for a tummy tuck.
