The Tummy Tuck is used by both men and women who want to achieve a flatter, smoother mid-section than they have been able to achieve through diet and exercise alone. Women often seek out a Tummy Tuck, also called Abdominoplasty, after pregnancies have left excess sagging skin and stretched out abdominal muscles. Men and women both may find they have excess, sagging skin in the mid-section following a significant weight fluctuations or bariatric surgery.
The Tummy Tuck is achieved through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen from hip to hip. It is important to understand that the incision in a Tummy Tuck procedure does leave a permanent scar.
