Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, while also tightening the underlying muscles. It can improve the appearance of a loose, sagging stomach that may be caused by pregnancy, significant weight loss, or aging.

Liposuction (removes fat but not excess skin)
Body contouring procedures (may not be as effective)

Tummy tuck surgery is a major procedure and should only be considered after careful consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
