A toned midsection can do wonders for your body. Aside from giving you a beach ready look, a lean stomach gives you a healthier physique and makes finding clothes much easier.
However, the road to a leaner stomach is easier said than done. If you’re like most people, you’ve probably done hundreds of crunches and a handful of diets to try to get slimmer. Many times, the results don’t come easy.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that slims down the stomach by removing excess skin, fat, and tissue from the middle or lower abdomen. The procedure takes about one to three hours to complete and may be performed under general or local anesthesia.
Contrary to popular belief, a tummy tuck is different from liposuction, although both procedures may go hand-in-hand. Liposuction focuses on fat extraction whereas a tummy tuck focuses on tightening the belly and the abdominal wall. In order to find out which procedure suits your goals, it’s best to consult a qualified board-certified surgeon.

There are two main types of abdominoplasty: complete abdominoplasty and partial abdominoplasty. The first type begins with your surgeon creating an incision spanning the length of both your hipbones in the lower abdomen, near your pubic area. The second type requires a smaller incision—about the length of an index finger—right beneath the navel.
