A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, from Wilmington Plastic Surgery can restore weakened or separated muscles, creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. While many of us strive for a flat and well-toned abdomen through exercise and weight control, sometimes these methods and hard work cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes, or is loose and sagging.

Wilmington Plastic Surgery surgeons are extremely skilled and accomplished at tummy tuck surgeries, and we customize our approach to every patient’s individual concerns.

The most common causes of protruding or lucid midsection include:
  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Significant fluctuations in weight
  • Heredity
  • Prior surgery

It is important to note that tummy tucks are not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. Also, tummy tuck operations cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed or somewhat improved if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised, generally the treated areas below the belly button.
