The Abdominoplasty procedure, more commonly called a Tummy Tuck, is a procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. There are a number of factor that can contribute to a person having excess, sagging skin in the mid-section or stretched out abdominal muscles. Women who have been pregnant and both men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time often have these complaints.
The Abdominoplasty incision typically runs across the lower abdomen from hip to hip and it is important to note that this incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easy to hide under clothes.
