A tummy tuck, known clinically as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at removing fat (subcutaneous) tissue from the middle and lower abdomen. Fat removal in these areas allows the surgeon to contour the shape of the body to create a firmer, tighter waist and midsection. Tummy tucks are one of the most common cosmetic procedure types for men and women who desire a leaner physique. But like any invasive procedure, significant scarring post-surgery is an inevitable result for many patients. Luckily, there are clinically-proven ways to reduce the appearance of most scars and products are easily attainable online.
