Abdominoplasty, or a ‘tummy tuck’, is one of the five most common cosmetic surgery procedures in the Pakistan, accounting for just over 10% of all cosmetic procedures in 2018 alone.
Following significant weight change it is common to be left with excess, sagging skin in the abdominal area. This is particularly common for women after pregnancy, and can also occur naturally as a result of the ageing process.
An abdominoplasty removes the excess skin from above the waistline, tightens the muscles and fascia of the abdominal wall, and restores a tighter, flatter-looking stomach. The procedure is often combined with liposuction to remove fat and improve the contours of the abdomen.
