The operation takes three to four hours, depending on the size of the area of the abdomen being operated on. During the procedure, excess skin is cut out and the adipose tissue accumulated underneath it is removed. The remaining part of the skin is sutured together by the surgeon to achieve appropriate tone. The abdominal muscles are also sewn together, which strengthens the anterior wall. This way, a slimmer-looking waist is achieved.
