Surgical Cases Related to Abdominoplasty

An abdominoplasty may be performed in select cases with a smaller incision

Commonly called “Tummy Tuck,” the colloquial term makes it sound cute and rather trivial; an abdominoplasty is in fact in geographic if not anesthetic terms a sizeable procedure.

It is performed to rid the patient of excess skin over the abdomen. As such it is not performed while the patient is losing weight, nor after bariatric surgery until the weight has stabilised. It comes in degrees, the smallest changes are open to liposuction, the largest require excision of kilos of skin.
