Excess skin and fat are not the only problems that can affect the appearance of your abdomen. Some people may suffer from a weakening of the muscles and tissue of the abdominal wall, which causes the abdomen to protrude and creates an unappealing bulge.
The tummy tuck procedure is able to correct aesthetic and structural issues in the abdomen. During the procedure, excess skin and fat are surgically excised to give the appearance of a flatter abdomen.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michelle Hardaway will also tighten the abdomen by suturing the muscle tissues of the abdominal wall closer together. This creates an abdomen that feels noticeably tighter and stronger.
If you are looking to improve the look and feel of your abdomen, a tummy tuck may be the best option for achieving your desired results. Contact us to schedule a consultation for your tummy tuck with Dr. Hardaway.
