The mid-section is a notoriously difficult area for many people. Whether you’ve undergone a significant weight loss, or been fluctuating in weight for years, or have had multiple pregnancies the excess, sagging skin that can appear can be frustrating to say the least. No amount of eating healthy and working out consistently will get rid of excess, sagging skin. In some cases, particularly after pregnancy, the abdominal muscles underneath can be loosened or stretched out. The Abdominoplasty procedure, also called a Tummy Tuck, is performed to reduce this excess, sagging skin and to tighten those loosened, stretched out abdominal muscles to create a smoother, more toned appearance.
The Abdominoplasty procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen between the hip bones. It is important to know that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by undergarments and swim wear.
