Tummy Tuck is a popular body contouring procedure performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. Also known as an Abdominoplasty, the Tummy Tuck commonly is chosen by people who have lost a significant amount of weight or women who have had one or more pregnancies as in both of these cases there is usually excess, sagging skin and potentially stretched out abdominal muscles. Tummy Tuck surgery may be combined with other body contouring procedures such as ultrasonic liposuction to re-contour the waist, removing stubborn fat and creating smoother, tighter, more youthful results.
The Tummy Tuck procedure is performed with an incision that run across the lower abdomen and it is important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar.
