What is it?
Laparotomy, also called abdominoplasty, is the procedure whereby excess fat and skin around the abdomen is removed. In many cases, it repairs weakened or separated muscles and makes the abdominal profile soft and tight.
Most of us try to have a flat and balanced abdomen with exercise and weight control. However sometimes these methods are not sufficient to reach the goals we wish.
Sometimes even those with a normal body weight and ratio may have a pooching out abdomen or a loose and loopy abdomen. The most common reasons of this are as follows:
- Genetic inheritance
- Previous surgery
- Important fluctuations in weight
