A tummy tuck is an operation to remove excess fat and skin from your abdomen

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 30 April 2019

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is an operation to remove excess fat and skin from your abdomen (tummy) and to tighten your abdominal muscles. The results of a tummy tuck can be long lasting. You can help this by keeping to a healthy weight after your surgery. There are lots of reasons why people have this type of surgery, including having weaker abdominal muscles after pregnancy or having previously lost a lot of weight.

Why do some people have a tummy tuck? You might want to have a tummy tuck because:

you have loose skin after major weight loss

your abdominal skin and muscles might have become slack after pregnancy

you have abdominal scarring from earlier surgery or injury

it’s part of another operation that you need, such as hernia repair

Tummy tuck surgery removes excess fat and skin and can tighten your abdominal muscles to improve the shape of your abdomen. Some stretch marks from pregnancy may be removed and others made less noticeable. Tummy tuck surgery isn’t a treatment to help you lose or control your weight and won’t stop you from gaining weight in the future either.
