Changes in weight, pregnancy, genetics and age can all effect the appearance of the mid-section to result in excess, sagging skin and loose or separated abdominal muscles. Both men and women can benefit from Abdominoplasty, also known as a Tummy Tuck. In some cases the Abdominoplasty may be combined with Liposuction to remove excess fat as well. In generally, the Tummy Tuck procedure is designed to remove excess skin from the mid-section and tighten the abdominal muscles. The remaining skin is then pulled tight and closed. The incision runs from hip to hip and though the scar will be permanent, Dr. Lyos works hard to make sure it is an inconspicuous as possible and can be easily hidden by underwear or swimwear.
