A tummy tuck in Kanpur is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen and to reposition the muscles in the abdominal wall. With pregnancies or severe weight fluctuations, the straight muscles of the abdominal wall tend to move away and, therefore, give the abdomen a rounder look. In these situations, the skin also loses elasticity, sometimes gains stretch marks, becomes more flaccid and forms folds that abdominoplasty allows to improve. When abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction, it is called Lipo-abdominoplasty.
WHO IS ABDOMINOPLASTY IN KANPUR INDICATED FOR?
Tummy tuck candidates must be emotionally mature patients and must understand their own motivations for performing the surgery. Realistic expectations are important, and it should be realized that the procedure brings improvement but not perfection.

Ideal candidates for a tummy tuck in Kanpur typically have the following characteristics:
- Stable weight;
- Dissatisfied with the appearance of the abdomen (“apron belly”, sagging, localized fat, bulging abdomen);
- Realistic expectations;
- Do not consider having more children.
