Abdominoplasty, also called Tummy Tuck, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. Women who have had multiple pregnancies often seek our abdominoplasty to repair their mid-section by tightening up stretched out abdominal muscles and eliminating excess, sagging skin. Both men and women tho have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time may experience excess, sagging skin that can only be resolve through surgical intervention. The abdominoplasty procedure is performed through an incision that runs across the lower abdomen from hip to hip.
It is important to know that this incision does leave a permanent scar–though it is easily hidden by underwear or swim wear. To learn more about the abdominoplasty procedure and recovery process, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
