The Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck procedure, is performed to eliminate excess, sagging skin and tighten stretched out abdominal muscles. There are many men and women alike who struggle with their mid-section appearance due to a number of factors from genetics to weight loss, pregnancy to the aging process. Many men and women feel self-conscious of this mid-section, particularly in the warmer months and this affects their confidence. The Abdominoplasty procedure is performed through an incision in the lower abdomen that runs from hip to hip. The incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easily cover by clothes and underwear.
The Abdominoplasty may not be right for everyone and cannot correct all mid-section complaints, it is not a substitute for maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime and it cannot correct stretch marks. Sometimes the Abdominoplasty procedure may be paired with Liposuction to remove stubborn fat in the area while also tightening the abdominal muscles and removing the sagging skin.
