A “tummy tuck” (abdominoplasty) improves the shape and function of your abdominal wall. It may be an option if you have excess or loose skin and fat deposits in your abdominal area following weight loss, pregnancy, or previous abdominal surgeries. Duke plastic surgeons remove the excess skin and fat and tighten the fascia, the layer of tissue that holds your abdominal muscles in place. We help you achieve an attractive, flat, contoured abdomen.
