Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen. During this procedure the muscles that have loosened possibly from pregnancy can be tightened. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.
However, to remove this excess skin there will be a scar which with a full tummy tuck can extend from hip to hip.
If you’re considering a tummy tuck, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect.
It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon.
