The Tummy Tuck procedure is commonly performed on women who have been through multiple pregnancies and are left with excess, sagging skin in the mid-section. Often, after pregnancy, women are also left with stretched out abdominal muscles that can create a distended appearance. The mid-section isn’t only a trouble zone for women who have been pregnant, however, many people, both men and women struggle with their abdominal appearance for a variety of reasons. Achieving a massive weight loss in a short period of time, or fluctuating in weight over time, genetics, and the aging process can all play a role in our dissatisfaction with the mid-section. Tummy Tuck surgery (full or mini versions) are performed with each individual patient in mind to create the best results for them. It is important to understand that the incision, which runs along the lower abdomen between the hip bones, does leave behind a permanent scar. The Tummy Tuck scar is usually hidden by underwear and clothing and does fade over time, but will never go away completely.
