The abdominoplasty procedure, also called a tummy tuck, is a procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. There are a number of people that struggle with the mid-section, particularly after weight fluctuations or pregnancy. Excess, sagging skin and loose, stretched out abdominal muscles can leave many feeling self-conscious and frustrated.
The abdominoplasty procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen from hip bone to hip bone. It is important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar. Some people choose to combine the abdominoplasty procedure with liposuction or other body contouring procedures.
