A tummy tuck is a surgery option also known as abdominal contouring. It targets the stomach area by tightening muscles and removing excess tissue. Patients and their surgeons have discovered that they can get even better results when combining muscle tightening with the removal of loose or sagging skin, stretch marks, and excess fat.

Abdominal muscle tightening is an effective part of a tummy tuck that can fix issues that dieting and exercise often cannot. Most notably, women who have had children may struggle with a so-called pouch or pooch in the lower belly area. Recontouring corrects this.
