The Tummy Tuck procedure is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for both men and women looking to improve the appearance of their mid-section. The mid-section can be a difficult area to improve due to a number of factors from pregnancy or excessive weight loss leaving behind excess, sagging skin to stretched out or loosened abdominal muscles; these are just a few examples of issues that no amount of diet or exercise will be able to correct. The Tummy Tuck is performed through an incision that runs horizontally along the lower abdomen from hip to hip–it is important to know that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar–though it is easily hidden by undergarments and clothes.
In some cases the Tummy Tuck surgery is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as Liposuction, if there is also an issue of stubborn fat in the area.
