This shows a full Abdominoplasty surgery performed by Dr. Art Foley in Olympia Washington. Abdominoplasty is also commonly referred to as a "Tummy Tuck." Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure also known as abdominoplasty to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. But bear in mind, it does produce a permanent scar.
