Tummy tuck

What is a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck is a technique in which the skin and fatty tissue of the lower abdomen is removed to improve the waist profile. In women who have given birth, this technique is combined with the repair of the muscular wall of the abdomen through the plication or suture of the rectus abdominis muscle.
