Both women and men choose to get Tummy Tucks, also called Abdominoplasty, for many reasons. Chief among these reasons are due to weight loss or pregnancy causing excess hanging skin and lose abdominal muscles. Having a concentrated area of fat deposits in the abdomen, causing it to extend out further from the body than is in proportion with the rest of your figure, is another reason people may opt for Abdominoplasty.
What to expect from an Abdominoplasty
In the procedure, an incision will be made, generally along the underwear line. Next, the excess skin and fat are removed and the abdominal muscles are sutured together. As the remaining skin is closed over them it will create a tighter, more toned looking stomach as well as a more defined waistline. Abdominoplasty can often be done in conjunction with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction. Discuss these options with your doctor.
