Abdominoplasty, also called a Tummy Tuck, is a cosmetic surgery procedures that is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. This mid-section region is a common area for people, both men and women of various ages, to struggle with and there are a number of factors that can contribute to this popular “trouble zone” being so difficult to tame. Women who have had multiple pregnancies are one of the most popular demographic to seek out abdominoplasty to repair the stretched our abdominal muscles, and loose, hanging, excess skin. Both men and women who have accomplished a significant and swift weight loss often experience excess, hanging skin in the area as well that can only be resolved through surgical intervention.
The Abdominoplasty procedure may be performed on its own or in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction (if stubborn fat in the area is also an issue) or as part of a mommy makeover.
