Dr. Michael Tantillo is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in abdominoplasty. Stubborn fat and loose skin on your stomach can be frustrating. No amount of exercise or dieting can restore stretched out skin and abdominal muscles, and belly fat is some of the hardest to get rid of. Dr. Tantillo can help with abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure for women and men who want a flat, toned abdomen. It is designed to remove excess skin and fat from the lower part of the abdomen, tighten weakened or separated abdominal muscles, and flatten the belly.
Ideal candidates for this procedure are women and men who are at a stable weight and physically healthy. Abdominoplasty is not a weight loss method, nor is it a substitute for regular exercise. It is an effective way to sculpt your midsection.
