The abdominoplasty or tummy tuck procedure tightens any weakness (diastasis recti)
of the abdominal wall muscles and removes the excessive fat and skin below the belly button (umbilicus). A mini
abdominoplasty addresses weaknesses and bulges in the lower abdomen. The length of the incision and amount of skin
and fatty tissue removed varies.
The abdomen frequently undergoes changes with pregnancy and weight gain. Massive
weight loss may result in skin redundancy. Recovery time from a tummy tuck or an abdominoplasty procedure depends
on the extent of the procedure. Insurance coverage varies.
