Abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a procedure performed to improve and rejuvenate the appearance of the mid-section. Sagging, excess skin after pregnancy or weight loss or simply as a result of getting older can make many people feel self-conscious. Pregnancy can also cause the abdominal muscles to appear distended as they become stretched out or loose. The abdominoplasty procedure can correct both of these issues by removing the excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. Performed through an incision that runs across the lower abdomen, it is important to note that this incision will leave a permanent scar—though it is easily hidden by undergarments.
