Tummy Tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section by reducing sagging skin and tightening stretched out muscles. Many people struggle with the mid-section, especially after pregnancy or a significant weight loss. The tummy tuck procedure is performed through an incision that runs across the lower abdomen from hip to hip. Excess sagging skin is removed and abdominal muscles that have been stretched out from pregnancy can be tightened. The tummy tuck procedure is sometimes performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction when there is stubborn fat in the area.
It is important to understand that the incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by clothing and under garments. If you are tired of feeling self-conscious of your mid-section and frustrated with the lack of results from diet and exercise alone, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation with Dr. Hubert today.
