Abdominoplasty, also called a Tummy Tuck, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. Both men and women who have achieved a significant weight loss and women who have had multiple pregnancies often are left with excess, sagging skin and may have stretched out abdominal muscles. The abdominoplasty procedure is performed with a horizontal incision that runs along the lower abdomen from hip to hip. This incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by clothes and underwear.
Abdominoplasty may be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction.
