A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightening the underlying muscles. This procedure is often sought after by individuals who have excess skin and fat in the abdominal area that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise alone. At The Ferguson Clinic, we have the necessary experience to perform your tummy tuck, so give us a call today to learn more!

Recovery from a tummy tuck can take several weeks. You will need to take time off work and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. You may also need to wear the compression garment for several weeks after the procedure.
