Obasi and his team at Noble Cosmetic Surgery work with patients interested in this surgery and want to learn more about the benefits of this and other body contouring solutions available at his Plano, Texas, practice.

What is tummy tuck surgery and what does it do?

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgery used to reduce excess fat and skin in the midsection area. This procedure is often sought by patients who are unable to address issues in this area with more traditional weight loss methods.

  • A reduction in excess fat and skin around the abdominal or stomach area 
  • An improvement in body contours and curves 
  • An increase in self-confidence and self-esteem 
  • A more flattering figure 
  • Improved posture 
  • Reduced back pain
