What Is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at removing excess skin, stretch marks, and fat from the abdomen while tightening the abdominal wall muscles. At Iorio Plastic Surgery & Medspa, Dr. Louis Iorio performs this procedure to sculpt a leaner silhouette and address aesthetic concerns related to abdominal contour.

How Does a Tummy Tuck Work?

During a tummy tuck procedure, excess skin and fatty deposits are surgically removed from the abdomen, and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened and repositioned. This results in a smoother, firmer abdominal contour and improved waistline definition. Dr. Iorio customizes each procedure to meet the unique needs and goals of the patient, ensuring natural-looking and satisfying outcomes.
