Sharon talks with Dr. Glenn Lyle from Raleigh Plastic Surgery about tummy tucks.

Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a “tummy tuck”, is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen, but does produce a permanent scar – depending on the original problem, it can extend from hip to hip.
