Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure used by both men and women to achieve a flatter and more toned mid-section appearance. Women often seek out the Abdominoplasty procedure, also called Tummy Tuck, following pregnancies that have left excess, sagging skin and a stretched out abdominal wall. Both men and women may seek out Abdominoplasty after a significant weight loss has left excess skin sagging in the tummy–this can make a person feel self-conscious and uncomfortable both in and out of their clothes.

In the Abdominoplasty procedure the incision is made along the lower portion of the abdomen from hip to hip–it should be understood that this incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden under underwear and swimwear. In some cases the Abdominoplasty procedure may be performed in combination with other procedure such as Liposuction if there is also a stubborn pocket of fat in the area.
