Prince Court Medical Center Has Earned Its Royal Name

The Prince Court Medical Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is making a big name for itself. In 2013 the facility fell at number one (#1) in the world for medical tourism hospitals! This was the first time the MTQUA gave the top spot to a Malaysian hospital. 

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure performed to make the abdomen firmer. In the procedure, excess fat and skin from the lower and middle abdomen is removed to give it a toned appearance. The fascia and the muscles of the abdominal wall are also tightened.

It is not the same as a liposuction, though many patients choose to undergo a liposuction along with a tummy tuck. The procedure is mainly sought out by individuals who have developed loose folds of skin after a pregnancy or those who have undergone major weight loss. Abdominoplasty is a major surgery and patients should carefully weight their options before opting for this procedure.
