About Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty is the official term for a tummy tuck operation.  They’re the same thing and have been around for about 50 years.  It involves removing a horizontal wedge of skin and fat from the lower front of the abdominal wall between the belly button and the pubic area.  The belly button is left in position, as it is attached to the abdominal wall muscles.  The upper abdominal skin is lifted up from its attachments to the underlying muscles.  If there is a divarication of the rectus muscles (refer below), it is strongly repaired. Next, the upper abdominal skin is stretched down to the pubic area, thinning and tightening the entire front of the abdominal wall. The skin is then all carefully closed, resulting in a long low horizontal scar line at about the level of the top of the pubic hair.  The belly button is then brought back out and neatly repaired.
