The Tummy Tuck procedure is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section and has been used by men and women alike, particularly after pregnancy or a significant weight loss. The Tummy Tuck, also called Abdominoplasty, is performed through an incision that runs across the lower abdomen between the hip bones. The exact size of the incision may vary depending on the amount rejuvenation being performed. The Tummy Tuck procedure has a two part approach, the first is tightening stretched out or loosened abdominal muscles, and the second is removing excess, sagging skin in the area.
The Tummy Tuck alone is not intended to remove stubborn pockets of fat int he abdominal region, but it may be paired with Liposuction to achieve both a more toned and tightened abdominal appearance.
