What is a Tummy Tuck?

A Tummy Tuck, or Abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at sculpting and rejuvenating the abdominal area. This procedure addresses concerns such as loose skin, excess fat, and weakened muscles that can result from factors like pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or the natural aging process.

By precisely removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying muscles, a Tummy Tuck provides a firmer, flatter, and more toned midsection, restoring confidence and enhancing your body’s contours.

At KH Plastic Surgery, under the skilled hands of Dr. Ari Hoschander, a Tummy Tuck is not just a surgery—it’s a step towards embracing your desired image and a renewed sense of self.
