Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of the mid-section when there is excess skin that is bothering the patient. Both men and women alike struggle with the mid-section due to excess skin after pregnancy or weight loss, stretched out abdominal muscles after pregnancy, and excess, stubborn pockets of fat. Through Abdominoplasty the excess skin can be removed, the abdominal muscles tightened and when Liposuction is performed in combination with the Abdominoplasty procedure the excess fat can also be removed.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a Tummy Tuck, is performed through a horizontal incision made along the lower abdomen from hip to hip. The incision from the Abdominoplasty procedure will leave behind a permanent scar that will fade in time but never go away completely. The incision scar is also easily hidden under your underwear and swimwear, so most patients find the scar to be a worthwhile trade off for the smoother, tighter and more toned mid-section appearance the Abdominoplasty procedure achieves.
