With our outdoor lifestyles there has been an increasing interest in those procedures that can improve the contour of our figure. It must be understood however that these procedures are not for weight reduction, which will require a modification to your diet and activity program. Sometimes despite diet and exercise a contour deformity remains. Abdominoplasty removes excess fatty tissue and skin in the lower abdominal region and, along with this tissue excision, a tightening of the overstretched abdominal muscle is also done. For women this procedure may be performed along with other abdominal surgery such as a hysterectomy, tubal ligation or bladder suspension. The incisions are placed discretely so the scars are as inconspicuous as possible and will often be concealed within a bathing suit line. This procedure is done through general anesthesia with a recommended overnight 23-hour outpatient stay.
