A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to remove excess fat and skin in the abdomen. The surgery can help restore weakened or separated stomach muscles and create a smoother and firmer abdomen.
Patients may consider a tummy tuck because of changes resulting from:
- Significant weight fluctuations
- Prior surgery
At the UVM Medical Center, our plastic surgeons have advanced expertise in performing tummy tuck procedures. We are committed to personalized care; giving patients the confidence of expert care suited to meet their needs. As a university hospital, every surgery we do is backed by the latest knowledge in the industry, and informed by the latest scientific research and techniques.
