Abdominoplasty: An abdominoplasty, commonly called a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure to remove loose, excess skin from the abdominal wall and tighten muscles of the stomach that typically loosen with changes in weight or pregnancy. This is not a substitute for weight loss and is very common to fix a woman's (or man's) "muffin top" or the appearance of the waist after finishing having children.
