The mid-section may become undesirable to a man or woman after a significant weight loss has been achieved and there is excess, sagging skin remaining. Women who have been pregnant often also experience the same excess, sagging skin in the area. Additionally, through the natural aging process the skin of all parts of the body may start to sag, along with the muscles. For many men and women the mid-section is also one of the most common areas people first gain weight and struggle the most to lose weight in. Through Abdominoplasty the mid-section may be rejuvenated to remove excess, sagging skin, tighten abdominal muscles that have been stretched out due to pregnancy, and create a smoother, firmer, more contoured appearance.
Some patients may opt to combine Abdominoplasty with Liposuction to remove excess, stubborn pockets of fat in the area or combine the procedure with other body contouring procedures such as a Thigh Lift or in combination with a Breast Lift or Augmentation as is commonly seen in a Mommy Makeover.
