Tummy tuck surgery is performed to correct a protruding abdomen, which often results from aging, pregnancy, and weight loss. The skin can become permanently stretched and sag in the stomach area, and weight gain and pregnancy can cause the abdominal muscles to stretch and tear. These conditions are often irreparable through diet and exercise. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat and can tighten the underlying abdominal muscles to provide a flatter, more defined midsection.
