What will be corrected?
A protruding abdomen or even hanging abdomen can be caused through pregnancies and natural ageing. With the tummy tuck the excess fat and skin is removed. The scar is situated just above the pubic hair and is similar to that of a Caesarean section, only longer and curving up. The naval has to be relocated in the correct place, once the skin is tightened. At the same time the loose underlying tissue and muscles are sutured together.
The pelvis is more upright which leads to a better posture and often less backache. The stomach capacity is also decreased which helps weight control through tummy tuck.
