Tummy Tuck is a plastic surgery procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the mid-section. The mid-section is a common trouble zone for many men and women. Women who have had multiple pregnancies and men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight very quickly, as is often seen in bariatric surgery patients, are usually left with excess, sagging skin left over. The Tummy Tuck procedure is designed to remove this excess, sagging skin and tighten the abdominal muscles that often get stretched out during pregnancy.

The Tummy Tuck procedure is performed through an incision along the lower portion of the abdomen from hip to hip. It is important to understand that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar, though it is usually easily hidden by underwear or swimwear. In some cases, the tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) procedure may be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction.
