How is a Tummy Tuck Done?
Abdominoplasty involves cutting up the stomach from the hip bone all the way through to the other hip bone, moving the skin as well as your belly button, placing contours and then closing the site. It’s common for excess fluids to collect after surgery, so surgeons place tubes around the surgery site in order to drain excess fluids. Typically, a scar remains after surgery, but it fades and disappears depending on the surgeon’s skills.
