Tummy Tuck in Kalamazoo at Parkway Plastic Surgery

A flat stomach is something almost everyone desires but can’t always be achieved through exercise, healthy diet, and other weight loss measures. There are many individuals who have a healthy body weight and normal proportions who can develop an abdomen that protrudes, sags, or is loose. In these cases, a tummy tuck may be necessary to achieve your goals.

Abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten muscles of the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty is not a surgical treatment for being overweight and is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. There are a variety of techniques that are used by plastic surgeons who perform the procedure. Tummy tuck surgery can be combined with other forms of body contouring surgeries, including liposuction, thigh lift, or arm lift. The procedure can be performed at the same time as other elective surgeries such as breast or facial surgery.
