Sometimes, getting older means experiencing weakened ab muscles. The ab muscles loosen and drift away from each other, making a person appear out of shape. A tummy tuck is an effective solution for this. An endoscopic tummy tuck is a type of tummy tuck used primarily to alter muscles in the abdominal region.
During an endoscopic tummy tuck, a plastic surgeon can use liposuction to remove fatty tissue deposits, recontouring the abdominal area. This involves the use of a cannula and a medical suction device, which transports the fat outside of the body. Once the procedure is complete, the small incisions that were created are closed with sutures.
