Why consider a tummy tuck?

The goal of the tummy tuck is to improve self-confidence in swimwear, eveningwear and everyday clothing. Dr. Lee offers advanced techniques that hides the scarring and optimizes your body’s contour. Our goal at PERK plastic surgery is to help you feel great in your new body and proud of your natural-appearing results.

Following massive weight loss or pregnancy, there is often excess skin left on the abdomen. The six-pack muscles are often separated in the middle. This is known as rectus diastasis. Unfortunately, the excess skin or the separation of the six-pack muscles will not respond to diet or exercise. Surgical intervention is usually the ideal option.


What are the advantages of abdominoplasty?

  • Better abdominal contour
