The rectus muscle is located in the abdomen, and if worked out with a lot of exercise, you can get six or eight packs. However, if it had been as simple as it sounds, then a protruding belly, or muffin tops would not have been an aesthetic complaint of the vast majority.

It often happens that after massive weight loss, there is a lot of loose skin. Skin as well muscle tones, becomes lax by being stretched to an ultimate limit of intra-abdominal volume in obese people or during pregnancy. Although after pregnancy, the skin's normal elasticity usually resumes. But massive weight loss after obesity, largely sees skin sagging, and drooping downwards that may be cosmetically unwanted. That is where body contouring treatment makes a difference, and tummy tuck is just one of them. The idea is to systematically remove the excess sagging skin from the abdomen and achieve a toned body.

Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck

An incision is made along the lower abdominal area from hip bone to hip bone, and around the belly button, to release the flap of skin from the abdomen and opened it up. Excess photic skin is removed from the lower end of the skin flap.

• Rectus Plication

Rectus Plication in a tummy surgery typically refers to the step of muscle strengthening after the skin excision. The rectus muscles are distanced and becomes thin, by the increased intra-abdominal sphere, which is placated- or hemmed for a diastasis repair.

Body Sculpting

The six-pack abs is more significant in men, while the women's rectus muscles, soft toned belly, than packs. If you have only dreamt of six packs and do not physically qualify to do the kind of exercise, to achieve it with body sculpting, which is a core strength compiling, non-invasive fat reduction procedure to help people tone their body contours.

Body sculpting is broadly performed using VASER HI Def Liposculpture, which is to groove a person's fat, using specialized liposuction probes, to create a definition in the skin.

Abdominoplasty Is Not For Weight Loss

Many people think that weight loss surgery consist of removing extra pounds of mass from a person's body to lose weight. The concept makes a close resemblance to what a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty surgery may look like, which is to remove excess skin and fat off a person's abdomen. However, this is not true.

Weight loss surgery, refers to bariatric surgery, which is performed as a last resort for severely obese people. Bariatric surgery constricts the gastric band to lessen food intake. Since, with obese people their gastric band expands, with the consumption of 3times more food than normal. The patient has to commit to lifelong dieting and exercising routine to continue to have a stable weight.
