Tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to correct the midsection of the body commonly after child birth or weight loss. The excess skin, change in belly button shape, lax abdominal muscle and excess fat in the waist area will all contribute to the unaesthetic look.

A tummy tuck is designed to reverse those changes. Each individual will require a procedure that is tailored to their need. But, in general, a tummy tuck should achieve the following goals:

1. An hour glass look to the midsection.

2. Tight skin in the front of the abdomen.

3. Tight abdominal muscles.

4. A new belly button.

5. A low scar that can be easily hidden.
