A Tummy tuck is a popular way of removing the fat by flattening out theabdominal wall so that the muscles can go back to the midline. The abdomen is composed of muscle and fat where the muscles are in the form of a cylinder which is there to keep the contents of the abdomen from bulging out. The fat in the surrounding muscles, on the other hand, is there as a food container and to keep us warm. As we grow older, these muscles become sloppy and we tend to put on extra fat which stretches the skin, resulting in stretch marks. This procedure mainly focuses on the muscles. Between liposuction and a tummy tuck, the latter is more appropriate for women who have had multiple pregnancies if they want to get back to where they were originally. The procedure starts off by making an incision in the lower part of the abdomen so that a wedge of skin and fat can be removed. Patients can choose where the scar will be but usually it is in the bikini area.
