The Right Tummy Tuck For You

There are many different tummy tuck techniques and your plastic surgeon can help you decide on which type will help you best achieve your aesthetic goals.

Traditional tummy tuck

The traditional tummy tuck is the most common type, and it involves making an incision from one hip to another. An additional incision can be made on the belly button. Since the surgery targets the entire abdominal area, it may involve moving the belly button in order to make sure that your results look natural. Normally, the tummy tuck can be combined with an abdominal liposuction procedure.

Mini tummy tuck

The mini tummy tuck is also known as a partial abdominoplasty, and is intended for patients at around 10 percent of their ideal body weight who want to make a change to the lower abdomen, which is under the navel. A mini tummy tuck requires one small incision, but does not involve repositioning of the navel. A partial abdominoplasty may lead to less dramatic changes where the appearance of the abdomen is concerned when compared to the full abdominoplasty surgery. It also requires a shorter surgery period compared to other tummy tuck treatments.

Endoscopic tummy tuck

An endoscopic tummy tuck is performed on patients who have problems with weakened abdominal muscles, little abdominal fat, and no noticeable loose skin at or around the stomach. An endoscopic tummy tuck involves using a tiny camera attached to a slender tube, known as endoscope. This is inserted in the incision site, and results in the least noticeable scarring because the incision does not have to be large. It is only used to insert the endoscope and other tools.

Extended tummy tuck

An extended tummy tuck reaches the love handles at each side of the waist, and it removes the excess skin and fat from the stomach area.

Circumferential tummy tuck

A circumferential tummy tuck is a type of body lift. The circumferential tummy tuck surgery is sought by the patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery, because too much weight loss can lead to excessive, sagging skin. Usually, medical insurance can cover the cost of this surgery, since having too much sagging skin can be both a health problem and an aesthetic problem.
