An abdominoplasty helps flatten and re-contour the abdomen and waist, by removing excess skin and fat, and by tightening the underlying muscles. The procedure is especially beneficial for women with loose skin, stretch-marks, and muscle laxity as a result of pregnancy, as well as for patients with excess fat and loose baggy skin, which has simply lost its elasticity.
