Abdominoplasty (*), known more commonly as a “Tummy Tuck” (view: Tummy Tuck before and after pics), is a procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen.
Individual factors and personal preferences will determine the specific technique selected to smooth and flatten your abdomen. Generally, a horizontal incision is placed just within or above the pubic area. The length of the incision, which extends laterally toward the pelvic bones, depends largely on the amount of skin to be removed. The contour of this incision will vary somewhat according to the structure of your abdomen and the style of bathing suit or lingerie that you prefer. Often it is possible to keep the incision within your bathing suit lines, but this may not always be possible. Results depend on your individual circumstances.
