Weight loss and gain, pregnancy, and genetics all play a huge role in creating the abdomen you have. Many people, both men and women are not happy with the abdomen they have, and desire a sleeker, leaner, more contoured mid-section. Unfortunately, sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to be able to create the results desired.
The abdominoplasty procedure itself involves removing fat and excess skin, tightening the abdominal muscles and suturing the remaining skin closed over them. Liposuction may also be used in this procedure. Abdominoplasty may not be right for everyone, though. Ideal candidate are in good health and have been at a steady, normal-range weight for at least several months. In addition to being healthy, it is equally important to have healthy aspirations. You should not seek out this procedure if you are doing it for anyone but yourself, or if you expect to receive unrealistic results.
