Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, is a popular procedure performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section by reducing excess, sagging skin in the area. Sometimes, especially after pregnancy, the abdominal muscles can get loosened and they can be tightened in the abdominoplasty procedure. Some people may opt to combine liposuction with he Tummy Tuck to both reduce excess, sagging skin as well as stubborn fat from the area. The abdominoplasty procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen between the hips bones. It is important to understand that this scar will leave a permanent scar, though it is usually easily hidden by undergarments.
