What Are Your Tummy Tuck Options?

Depending on the health and body condition of yours there are several techniques in tummy tuck that you can opt for:

Mini tummy tuck

If you want a very small amount of skin to be removed this is the best option. For people who have developed a small protruding abdomen due to aging, this is the best option.

Full tummy tuck

This is the conventional method which is best for people who have undergone significant weight loss and also women going through post-pregnancy.

Extended tummy tuck

This is suitable for people who are obese and who have excess overhanging skin and accumulated fat.

Circumferential tummy tuck

This is the extreme type of tummy tuck procedure which is used for people who have lost weight drastically and they have overhanging skin over the entire body.

What Are The Procedures Involved?
In a flat tummy tuck technique, an incision is made around the belly button and another incision that runs from hip to hip. The excess skin and fat are removed, then the entire abdominal wall is tightened with permanent sutures.

In case of a mini tummy tuck, the procedure happens with liposuction of the upper abdomen and flank area. A small incision is made in the panty-line and excess fat and skin are removed. Later permanent sutures are used to tighten the abdominal walls.

Once the procedure is done, bed rest is recommended for two to three days and a special abdominal support garment is given which you should wear it for 4-6 weeks. The sutures will be removed in 1-2 weeks and the scars will fade over time.

The best part of the procedure is you will not have stretch marks and with a proper diet this procedure will stay on for decades.
