The Abdominoplasty procedure, also called a Tummy Tuck, is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. The mid-section can be a difficult area for many to tone and improve. When diet and exercise alone fails to achieve the results desired, it can be incredibly frustrating. Pregnancy and losing a significant amount of weight in a short period of time can both lead to excess, sagging skin in the abdominal region and/or stretched out abdominal muscles which cannot be improved by diet and exercise alone. The abdominoplasty procedure is performed through a horizontal incision that runs from hip to hip across the lower abdomen.
Sometimes the abdominoplasty procedure is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction. If you are interested in learning more about abdominoplasty and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with us today.
