Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty Miami Ab Muscles

Posted November 22, 2013 in Plastic Surgery

Tummy Tuck

The vertical abdominal muscles, called rectus muscles, are usually close together. As life goes on, however, they sometimes become loose and spread apart, entering a state of diastasis. To correct this condition, many people get a tummy tuck.

During a tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon will tighten the rectus muscles. They’ll bring these muscles back together and secure them in their new position using medical sutures, strengthening and toning the abdominal wall.

Sculpted abs are just one of the many benefits of a tummy tuck operation, so contact us today to set up an initial consultation. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss the procedure with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Careaga, an experienced professional in the Miami area.
