The Tummy Tuck is a popular procedure among both men and women who are seeking to rejuvenate their mid-section. Women often seek out the Tummy Tuck, also called Abdominoplasty, procedure after pregnancy has left excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. Both men and women may opt for a Tummy Tuck after a significant weight loss has left excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. Through Tummy Tuck surgery Dr. Vistnes makes an incision that runs horizontally along the lower abdominal region from hip to hip. It is important to understand that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by underwear or swimwear.
Some people may choose to combine the Tummy Tuck procedure with Liposuction to also remove excess, stubborn fat cells from the area. Women whose abdominal muscles have been stretched out and loosened through pregnancy can have their abdominal muscles tightened in the Tummy Tuck procedure.
