While your abdomen might not necessarily be on constant display to the rest of the world, few things beat the feeling of self-confidence that come from the ability to show off a perfectly-toned midsection. If you’re finding that your chest and abdomen aren’t responding to diet and exercise in quite the ways you had hoped, a tummy tuck might be the perfect solution for you.
The Day of Your Abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty can be a fairly extensive procedure, depending on the size of the treatment area, and is almost always performed under general anesthesia. The most common placement for the incision is just above the pubic area, typically running from one hip to the other. This placement makes the scar easy to hide with clothes and undergarments, and keeps it from being noticed by most other individuals. If another incision placement is decided upon, you’ll go over it during your consultations before the day of your surgery.
