If you've ever considered a tummy tuck, you're not alone. In 2012, surgeons nationwide performed more than 155,000 tummy tucks, making it the third most requested plastic surgery procedure in the United States, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
A tummy tuck, also referred to as abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure where loose, extra skin and fat cell deposits are removed. Depending on the type of results you want to achieve, an abdominoplasty may be combined with liposuction to remove fat from the abdominal area. Typically, your plastic surgeon will also tighten your abdominal muscles, or rectus abdominis muscle, with sutures during the tummy tuck. The entire process only takes a few hours to complete and many patients are able to return to work in just one to three weeks after surgery.
