What is an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck?
Abdominoplasty is an operation performed to improve or enhance soft tissue evolutionary changes resulting either from natural ageing, weight loss or pregnancy. These processes might stretch some of your underlying tissues which remain permanently elongated. A reasonable undertaking before this operation would be to ensure that you have a stable weight and diet for at least six months. Some patients may even choose to accept their steady improvement from diet, exercise and smoking cessation alone without surgery. At the same token, despite valiant efforts of the above, no improvements are seen and, patients then choose to have a tummy tuck.

During the abdominoplasty, loose or redundant skin is removed below the navel and the remainder tissues fastened to the underlying structures. The tissues are carefully balanced before closure.
Dr. Nara will explain the intricacies of a tummy tuck based on your individual goals and expectations, in light of any existing medical conditions. Dr Nara will suggest a responsible and balanced approach to the surgical path, for example recommending that you have a stable weight and diet for at least six months.
