Abdominoplasty is a body contouring procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the mid-section, especially after pregnancy or a significant weight loss. The abdominoplasty procedure, also called a tummy tuck, is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen from hip to hip. The incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by under garments and clothes. Excess skin is removed, stretched out abdominal muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin closed to create a smoother, more toned appearance. In some cases, liposuction may also be performed at the same time to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in the area.
