The Tummy Tuck procedure has helped a number of both men and women of various ages reclaim their mid-sections and gain body-confidence. The mid-section is a notorious trouble-zone for a number of people. Women who have had multiple pregnancies are often left with excess, sagging skin and can have abdominal muscles that are stretched out or loosened and appear distended.
Similarly, both men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time can also have excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. This can be frustrating because no amount of healthy eating and consistent exercise can correct excess skin.
The Tummy Tuck procedure, also called Abdominoplasty, is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen from hip to hip. The length of the incision depends on the amount of excess skin being removed. It is important to know that the incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by undergarments.
