Abdominoplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for both men and women. Women often seek out Abdominoplasty, also called a Tummy Tuck, after giving birth when there is excess, sagging skin and stretched out abdominal muscles from pregnancy. Both men and women may use Abdominoplasty to rejuvenate the appearance of their mid-section following a significant weight loss, or simply to achieve the mid-section they’ve always desired but been unable to achieve through diet and exercise alone. There are a couple different types of Abdominoplasty techniques from the Traditional Tummy Tuck where the entire abdomen is addressed through an incision that runs horizontally from hip to hip. The Brazilian Tummy Tuck combines the Tummy Tuck and Liposuction to reduce sagging skin as well as stubborn fat in the abdomen. The Mini-Tummy Tuck addresses mid-section concerns that are limited to the area below the belly button and is slightly less invasive.
