What is a tummy tuck?

A friend of mine, who I have spoken to on the phone but have not seen since my surgery, asked me a really astute question today about my surgery. She wanted to know where my new belly button is. I explained that I still have the same belly button on the INSIDE but the old "outside" has been pulled down and closed up. A new external belly button was created on top of the "umbilicus" - the actual stalk of the belly button, the thing that feeds you when you're a baby in your mother's womb.

I thought that was a great question, and one that no one has ever asked me (and one I had never thought to ask. So, I am linking to the explanation of Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Website.
