Abdominoplasty is procedure designed to improve the appearance of the mid-section by removing excess, sagging skin caused by aging, weight loss or pregnancy. Abominoplasty can also tightened stretched our abdominal muscles that don’t respond to exercise, as is typically seen after pregnancy. It is important to understand that abdominoplasty is not a weight loss procedure, rather abrominoplasty is intended to create a more smooth and flat mid-section. Sometimes abdominoplasty is performed in combination with Liposuction to also remove excess, stubborn pockets of fat in the area for optimal results.
