The tummy tuck is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tucks are used to remove loose skin and fatty tissue around the abdominal region while tightening and smoothing the area. There are actually several types of tummy tucks. You can speak with a qualified plastic surgeon to see which procedure works best for you.
This tummy tuck procedure is combined with abdominal liposuction. It is the most invasive of the procedures, but it also garners the best overall results. The procedure is ideal for anyone who has very loose abdominal skin, sagging, and excess abdominal fat. In most cases, you can expect anywhere from 2-4 inches removed off the waistline. After the fat and skin is successfully removed, the abdominal wall is tightened. After a period of recovery, you will see great results.
This type of tummy tuck is targeted to treat the area below the belly button. Fat and excess skin is removed via a small horizontal incision between the hips. Most patients who opt for the mini tummy tuck have less fat and skin to be removed. They also already have pretty good lower abdominal muscle tone.
