Tummy Tuck is a plastic surgery procedure to remove excess, sagging skin in the mid-section that is common after pregnancy or a significant weight loss as is often seen in bariatric surgery patients. Tummy Tuck surgery, also called Abdominoplasty, may be performed on men and women of various ages to improve the appearance of the mid-section. Some people have always struggled with their mid-section, even as the rest of their body responded to diet and exercise. Our self-confidence can take a hit when we are constantly feeling self-conscious of our mid-section.
The Tummy Tuck procedure is performed with an incision that runs horizontally along the lower portion of the abdomen from hip to hip. It should be noted that this incision will leave a permanent scar that will fade over time, but never go away completely. In some cases, the Tummy Tuck may be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as Liposuction if there are also stubborn fat cells in the area.
