Tummy Tuck Forum - When Is Muscle Tightening Recommended?

When is muscle tightening recommended with a tummy tuck?

Muscle Fascia Repair is an integral part of any tummy tuck where these structures have loosened as seen in issues After Pregnancy and After Weight Loss. If these deeper layers are not lax, then they do not need to be tightened. However, in almost all cases, both superficial and deeper structures contribute to the problem of laxity.

Hope this helps,
