Abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a popular body contouring procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. The mid-section is often an area of the body that many people struggle with for a variety of reasons. Women who have had multiple pregnancies and men and women who have had weight fluctuations or a fast and significant weight loss are often left with excess, sagging skin. Women who have been through multiple pregnancies are also often left with loose and stretched out abdominal muscles that appear distended.
The abdominoplasty procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the lower portion of the abdomen from hip bone to hip bone. This incision will leave a permanent scar though it is easily hidden by undergarments.
