A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that is meant to tighten the abdomen and give it a flatter appearance. It is normally used on people after they have had either a significant weight loss or (most commonly) after pregnancy because the skin and muscles of the abdomen get stretched1
This is a 32 year old, 5'5", 140 pound woman who complained of some extra tummy skin and lower fatty roll that she couldn't get rid of after having children. Additionally, her abdominal muscles had separated during pregnancy creating a rounder tummy than she wanted. Dr. Vath performed a no-drain tummy tuck and post-operative pictures were taken 2 months after surgery.
This is a 30 year old, 5'8", 137 pound woman who sought Dr. Vath's help with her loose abdominal skin and muscles as well as "deflated" breasts after having children. She underwent a "mommy makeover" including a no-drain tummy tuck to tighten her tummy and a breast augmentation to fill out her breasts. Notice that she had a hernia around her belly button which was repaired during the abdominoplasty. Post-operative pictures are from 3 months after surgery.
This is a 36 year old, 5'5", 130 pound mom, who underwent a "mommy makeover". She had a breast augmentation with mastopexy (breast lift) and an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). She had 400 cc implants placed into a subpectoral position (beneath the muscle). Post-operative pictures are from 6 months after surgery. Scars will fade considerably over the following year.

Her scars will significantly fade over the following year to become inconspicuous.

This is a 33 year old, 5'4", 130 pound woman who underwent a mommy makeover. This included a breast augmentation to fill out her breasts and an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to flatten and tighten her tummy. She chose 371cc, smooth, round silicone gel implants placed through an inframammary fold incision into a subpectoral position. She also underwent the "no-drain tummy tuck" which Dr. Vath has been performing for over 7 years. This allows for an easier recover with less complications and a better contouring effect to the aesthetic result. Post-operative pictures are from 9 months after surgery.
