What is an abdominoplasty?
An abdominoplasty is the medical term for a tummy tuck procedure. This procedure is performed on the stomach and is often used to remove excess skin from a patient. An abdominoplasty begins with an incision across the center of the patient's stomach. After making the incision, excess skin will be removed while the remaining skin is pulled down. Lastly, the skin will be sewn back together which ends an abdominoplasty.
