An Abdominoplasty (or a Tummy Tuck) is a procedure in which excess fat and skin is removed and, in the majority of cases, weakened or separated muscles are restored, creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and more toned. It can be performed on men as well as women. Having a smooth and toned abdomen is something that many strive to achieve through physical exercise and weight control. However, at times, physical exercise and weight control are not enough to achieve such goals. Even people with normal body weight and proportions may develop protruding, loose and flabby abdomens.

Pregnancy, aging, significant changes in weight, genetic predisposition and previous surgeries may cause aesthetic and functional alterations in the abdomen, making this procedure necessary. 

The type of procedure varies according to the amount of excess skin involved. The procedure may be: a classic abdominoplasty, a modified or a mini-abdominoplasty.

This procedure is generally carried out in conjunction with liposuction. This enables treatment of the fat tissue in the back and flanks, bringing better definition to the waist.
