Abdominoplasty is performed on both men and women to rejuvenate the appearance of the mid-section. Many women seek out Abdominoplasty, also called a Tummy Tuck, after multiple pregnancies have left excess, sagging skin in the mid-section and stretched out abdominal muscles. The mid-section may also have excess, sagging skin due to a significant weight loss as is often seen after bariatric surgery. The Abdominoplasty procedure may be performed using a couple difference techniques depending on the amount of rejuvenation required for each patient and if they are combining any additional procedure with the Abdominoplasty at the same time.
Some patients may opt to combine the Abdominoplasty procedure with Liposuction to remove stubborn fat from the abdomen.
