Tummy Tucks are a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for improving the appearance of the mid-section. The abdominal region can be a troubling area for many people–both men and women. When there is excess skin, which is often seen after pregnancy or a significant weight loss, it can be frustrating because no amount of diet or exercise can resolve it. Through the tummy tuck procedure, however, which is also call abdominoplasty, the excess skin is removed and stretched out abdominal muscles can also be tightened. The procedure is performed through a horizontal incision along the lower portion of the abdomen between the left and right hips.

It is important for prospective patients to understand that this incision does leave behind a permanent scar, thought the trade off for many who’ve had the procedure has proved worth it considering the scar is typically hidden by undergarments and swimwear.
