Abdominoplasty helps to flatten and shape the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles.
The cosmetic surgery procedure takes approximately two to five hours and can be performed with general anesthesia or local anesthesia with a sedative. Recovery time ranges from two weeks to a few months. With a balanced diet and regular exercise, results are long-lasting. Abdominoplasty will likely leave a permanent scar stretching between the hips, although it should be low enough for even a bikini to conceal it.
