It is a rather common operation. Both sexes face the problem of a loose abdominal wall. Under general anesthesia a horizontal incision is performed that can easily be hidden by the underwear.
Abdominal muscle distention
Excessive skin and fat is carefully removed. Abdominal muscle distention is then repaired. More women than men undergo the operation especially after having given birth to children after which the problem is more intense. It is also common when somebody loses lots of weight after a long diet.
The day after the operation one can serve himself/herself and return home. It takes a couple of weeks to return to work.
