Relating to both the abdomen and the vagina.
Relating to the abdomen and urinary bladder, or to the abdomen and the gallbladder.
acute abdomen (s) (noun)
Any belly condition of abrupt or fast pain as a result of inflammation, perforation, obstruction, or rupture of the stomach area: "A medical term for the quick onset of abdominal pain which can be a potential medical emergency because an acute abdomen may reflect a major problem with one of the organs in the abdomen; such as, appendicitis (inflamed appendix), cholecystitis (inflamed gallbladder), a perforated ulcer in the intestine, or a ruptured spleen (located on the left side of the abdomen near the stomach and filters blood, serves as a major reservoir for blood)."
1. Cosmetic surgery of the abdomen to remove wrinkles and tighten the skin over the stomach.
2. An operation performed on the wall of the abdomen to make it look better.
3. Surgery that improves the appearance of flabby, stretched-out abdominal (belly) muscles and skin.

It is often called a "tummy tuck" and it can range from a simple "mini-tummy tuck" to a more complicated, extended surgery.

This kind of surgery is not the same as liposuction, another way to remove fat; however, abdominal wall surgery is sometimes combined with liposuction.

obliquus internus abdominis; internal abdominal oblique muscle
1. A small, thin, deep muscle of the abdomen which is a diagonally arranged abdominal muscle on either side of the torso.

It runs diagonally opposite underneath the external oblique.

It has a quadrilateral form originating from the hip bone (crest of the ilium), and extending to the cartilage of the lower ribs (the tenth, elenenth, and twelfth ribs).

It is innervated by the lower thoracic nerves and supplies the intercostal and lumbar arteries and this muscle protects a weak point in the abdominal wall and works with the external oblique to help twist the torso.

2. One of a pair of anterolateral (front and away from the middle line) muscles of the abdomen, lying under the external oblique muscle in the lateral and ventral part of the abdominal wall.

It is smaller and thinner than the external oblique muscle and it functions to compress the abdominal contents and assists in micturition, defecation, emesis, parturition, and forced expiration.

Both muscles acting together serve to flex the vertebral column, drawing the costal cartilages toward the pubis.

One side acting alone bends the vertebral column laterally and rotates it, drawing the shoulder of the opposite side downward.

Referring to the pelvis and the abdomen or the pelvic and abdominal cavities.

The pelvis is the basin-shaped structure that supports the organs of the lower abdomen. It receives the weight of the upper body and distributes it to the legs and it also forms the base for numerous muscle attachments.

pendulous abdomen
A condition in which the excessively relaxed anterior (front) wall of the abdomen hangs down over the pubis or the forward portion of either of the hipbone that forms the lower front section of the hipbone in humans and is one of a pair joined at the front of the pelvis.
A reference to the rectum and the abdomen.
