What can a Tummy Tuck improve?

Excess and loose abdominal skin

The primary goal of tummy tuck surgery is to remove the excess skin in the abdomen. Skin tucking not only removes the excess skin but tightens the remaining tissue.

Excess abdominal fat

Fatty tissue in the abdomen can be removed with tummy tuck surgery if located in the area of skin removal. Sometimes it is combined with liposuction surgery to contour excess fat in the other areas of the abdomen, waist, or flanks.

Wide waist

Excess skin and fat can blunt body contours and create a wide waist appearance. Dr. Rueda specializes techniques that narrow the waist internally with sutures.
