There’s no exercise or diet you can implement that will fix loose, sagging skin around the abdomen. Those traditional solutions are also unable to remedy separated muscles along the abdominal walls caused from stretching through pregnancy. This is why an abdominoplasty is such a wonderful cosmetic tool.

A tummy tuck, clinically known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. JoAnne Lopes to help you regain the waistline lost after pregnancy or weight gain.

Dr. Lopes offers advanced tummy tuck techniques to tone and tighten the skin and muscle around the midsection. There are several ways to approach the procedure, which will depend primarily on the patient’s needs and preferences.
