DR. DAVID PASSARETTI: Many patients have expectations just like yours. A lot of my patients ask, how the surgery's performed and what they can expect afterward. To perform an abdominoplasty procedure an incision is made from hip bone to hip bone just above the pubic area. Then the skin is separated from the abdominal wall to reveal the vertical muscles in a patient's abdomen. These muscles are tightened by pulling them close together and stitching them into their new position. This provides a firmer abdominal wall and narrows the waistline. Do you have any preliminary questions about an abdominoplasty procedure?
