Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, is a surgical procedure that helps flatten the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. It also tightens the muscle.
Abdominoplasty is an appropriate procedure for slightly obese people who have lost elasticity in their skin and for women whose skin and muscles have been stretched from pregnancy. the patient is placed under general anesthesia. Two incisions will be made: one from the hip bone on one side to the hipbone on the other side of the body, close to the pubic area, the other incision around the navel.
The most common causes of this include:
- Prior surgery
- Significant fluctuations in weight
