Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin protruding from the abdominal area. It's also called a tummy tuck. The exact procedural steps that take place depend on your goals and the amount and nature of excess abdominal skin and fat.
In a typical abdominoplasty procedure, an incision is made from hip to hip, across the pubic region. An incision may also be made around the belly button. Using this incision, our experienced plastic surgeons help tighten the abdominal muscles, and remove excess skin and fat.
If the muscles lying across the abdomen have become stretched and separated – which is not uncommon among women who have been pregnant before – then these muscles will be stitched back together to create the appearance of a slimmer, more toned abdomen.
There are variations of the procedure that can be performed to meet your specific goals and body. During your consultation with one of our plastic surgeons, we'll discuss the specifics of this surgery with you and whether it may be the right way to accomplish your goals for your body.
