Abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to enhance the abdominal region aesthetically. As we get older we often find our skin is less elastic and starts to sag…certain life events can exaggerate and accelerate this process such as a significant weight loss through bariatric surgery, or pregnancy. Women who have had multiple pregnancies often find that their abdominal muscles have been stretched out, loosened or distended and there is excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. The Abdominoplasty procedure can tighten those loosened abdominal muscles and remove excess, sagging skin to create a more defined, tighter, and toned looking mid-section.
In some cases Liposuction may be performed in combination with the Abdominoplasty procedure to also remove excess, stubborn fat cells.
