Abdominoplasty more commonly known as a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that helps remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. If you have recently lost a lot of weight, you might have noticed that the skin turned saggy on your stomach and back. You can tighten your core muscles with a healthy diet and exercise, but they will not help get rid of that stretched out skin. Once it has lost its elasticity, it cannot suck back in again. Luckily, there is a great solution to your problem!
