The mid-section is notoriously riddled with complaints from both male and female parties. Issues may have been a life long battle of not being able to achieve the tight and toned appearance desired, or may have been brought on by a dramatic weight loss or the effects of pregnancy. Excess skin around the abdomen is a common problem and one that many find frustrating as no amount of diet and exercise will make that sagging skin go away. Through St. Louis Abdominoplasty, or a Tummy Tuck as it is also called, the excess skin is removed and tightened for a smoother, tighter appearance. In some cases, a person may wish to lose both excess skin and stubborn fat in the abdominal region, for this person a combination of Abdominoplasty and Liposuction is often the best way to go.

People who are in good health and have been at a stable, healthy weight for at least 6 months, and who have excess skin around the abdomen are generally good candidates for Abdominoplasty. One thing to keep in mind when considering an Abdominoplasty procedure is that the scar from this surgery will be permanent, but most plastic surgeons work hard to ensure that it will be easily hidden by most undergarments or swim wear.
