2011's Leaders are...

The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons declared that the US performed over 1 million plastic surgery procedures in 2011. Brazil, China, and Japan also performed top numbers of cosmetic surgeries.

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.
