tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

Excess abdominal skin is removed between the pubic hair and the umbilicus. The scar is situated on the upper border of the pubic hair, like in a caesarean section or an operation on the womb, but it extends into the waistline. Tthe umbilicus is repositioned in the new centre of the abdomen. This operation is often combined with liposculpture, with an abdominal muscle correction, or both.
