Almost everyone who undergoes a significant, dramatic weight loss is going to have some amount of excess, sagging skin left over. Excess, sagging skin around the abdomen is also common in women who have had multiple pregnancies. It can be an emotionally traumatizing thing to deal with and can destroy confidence, as well as hinder fashion choices. People who are in good health and have been at a stable, healthy weight for at least 6 months, and who have excess skin around the abdomen are generally good candidates for Abdominoplasty.
Abdominoplasty is a procedure to remove the excess skin around the abdomen. There are several varying types of Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, procedures depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. One thing to keep in mind when considering an Abdominoplasty procedure is that the scar from this surgery will be permanent, but most plastic surgeons work hard to ensure that it will be easily hidden by most undergarments or swim wear.
