Despite your best efforts to improve the appearance of your stomach through diet and exercise, you may look in the mirror and find that your abdominal region does not have the appearance that you desire. Excess abdominal skin and fat, and muscle separation are common concerns for many people which can be caused by factors such as pregnancy, weight fluctuation, and genetics. A tummy tuck may be in your best interest if you are not seeing the results that you want from your diet and exercise program.
