Due to slackening and stretching of the abdominal muscles combined with overweight, the spinal column can be burdened in the wrong way which can cause back problems. A less serious form of slackening, such as a somewhat protruding lower abdomen or wrinkled skin on the lower abdomen, may also be a reason to consider a tummy tuck.
The correction involves the removal of excess skin and fat tissue and, when necessary, the restoration of the firmness of the abdominal wall. The plastic surgeon will conduct the procedure in such a way that the scars will be minimally visible. Whenever it is possible, there will only be a horizontal scar, as low as possible on the lower abdomen, so it can be covered by your underwear.
