Tummy Tuck, also called Abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to improve the common aesthetic issues of the mid-section. Tummy Tuck is performed through an incision that runs along the lower abdomen from hip to hip. It should be noted that the incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by clothes and undergarments. Sometimes the Tummy Tuck is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as Liposuction when there is excess, stubborn fat in the area that has not been responsive to diet and exercise. In some cases, the Tummy Tuck may be performed as part of a Mommy Makeover procedure in combination with a breast augmentation or breast lift.
