Both men and women are seen at the practice of Dr. Thomas Wiener looking for ways to address this issue with surgical intervention. Oftentimes, patients will be told that they could benefit from a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty.
What is a tummy tuck?
One of the most popular aesthetic procedures for the body, next to breast augmentation, is the tummy tuck. The tummy tuck is a surgery during which Dr. Thomas Wiener will remove excess fat in the abdominal area with liposuction, and then address any excess skin that may remain afterwards.
