What is abdominoplasty surgery?

Abdominoplasty surgery, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is an operation to remove extra skin, scars, stretch marks and fat from the tummy, and sometimes to tighten the tummy muscles. What is the alternative treatment? Losing weight and exercising to tighten up the tummy muscles may help. For some younger patients, liposuction (where fat is sucked out through a tube inserted into small cuts) can help. This can be done on its own, or with a tummy tuck.
