The best candidates for tummy tuck are patients who have loose or excess skin around the midsection that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise. The sagging is usually caused by some combination of excess skin, weakened abdominal muscles, and excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominoplasty is designed to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, tighten the abdominal muscles, and create a smoother body contour.
A tummy tuck at Dr Hetzler’s New Jersey practice is customized and adapted to each patient’s individual needs, but, in general, the procedure begins with an incision along the lower abdomen. The abdominal muscles are tightened to create a narrower waistline and flatter midsection.
