Tummy Tuck, also called Abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure performed to improve mid-section by reducing excess, sagging skin and tightening abdominal muscles. Many men and women alike struggle with their mid-section, particularly after pregnancy or a significant weight loss. Pregnancy can stretch the skin out and leave is sagging as well as stretch out or loosen the abdominal muscles. People who have lost a significant amount of weight in a relatively short period of time may also be left with excess, sagging skin in the mid-section and other areas of the body as well. Sometimes it’s just a combination of getting older and genetics that leads to disatisfaction in the mid-section appearance. It can  be especially frustrating for those who’ve been consistent in their exercise and healthy eating, who are still not seeing the results they want.
The Tummy Tuck procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen from hip to hip. The incision length can vary depending on the amount of rejuvenation required to acheive the desired results. Sometimes the tummy tuck procedure is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction.
