Abdominoplasty has become a popular cosmetic procedure among women. This plastic surgery procedure is also called tummy tuck.
This kind of plastic surgery is very popular among Hollywood celebrities. This is the surgery that most celebrities get after having children to get back their pre-babies bodies.
