Patients who have excess fat but do not have sagging or excess skin generally don't require for tummy tuck surgery and benefit tremendously from liposuction.

During tummy tuck surgery, excess fat, tissue, and skin are removed, the muscles are tightened,and the remaining skin is

repositioned to give the abdomen a flatter, more attractive contour.
At the end of the surgery, there is a scar in the lower part of the abdomen ( in the panty line). 3 types of tummy tuck procedure are, the mini tummy tuck, the standard tummy tuck, and the extended tummy tuck. During your consultation the doctor will evaluate your case and determine what category you fall under.
