Abdominoplasty is classified as a major surgery that can significantly improve the shape and contour of your body. Loose skin and excess fat is removed and the muscles are repaired when needed.
Excess skin and fat on the abdomen may be hereditary or due to lifestyle choices. Loose skin on the abdomen can be due be weight loss or post pregnancy related. Sometimes pregnancy can lead to diastasis recti where the muscles separate and suturing the muscles back together will repair this.
