The abdominoplasty procedure, more commonly referred to as a “tummy tuck,” is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section on both men and women. The mid-section is one of the most common areas that people struggle with due to a variety of reasons. After losing weight, weight fluctuations, or after pregnancy there can be excess, sagging skin and/or stretched out abdominal muscles that no amount of diet and exercise can resolve.
The abdominoplasty procedure is performed through an incision that runs across the lower portion of the abdomen from hip bone to hip bone. Sometimes a smaller incision is made if there is less work to be done to create the desired results. In some cases, the abdominoplasty procedure is performed in combination with other procedures such as liposuction if there is also stubborn fat in the area that has not responded to diet and exercise.
