A mini tummy tuck or full tummy tuck?

One of the hardest areas of your body when it comes to losing weight is probably the abdomen. Even if you do succeed in losing weight on the tummy with regular exercise and dieting, it may leave you with sagging excessive skin. This could be when you lose considerable weight after pregnancy or obesity. If you are tired of this unsightly tissue, a tummy tuck is the best solution for you.

Those who lose weight get frustrated with the sagging skin that does not allow them to enjoy the benefits of weight loss. Cosmetic surgery is the best option in these cases helping you eliminate the remaining abdomen skin and finally show off the fruits of your hard work with weight loss.

Tummy tuck is performed with the aim of removing excessive fatty tissue from the abdomen. It is a common procedure across the globe with those who desire better body contours. You can choose from different kinds of abdominoplasty available; the most common ones are a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck.

What is a mini tummy tuck?

This is the tummy tuck procedure usually best for those wanting to eliminate minimal to moderate amount of loose skin and fat which can be removed easily. During this procedure, your surgeon makes a small horizontal incision above the pubic area. If required, there may be a secondary incision around the belly button. This incision allows the surgeon to remove the fat, tighten the abdominal muscles and remove any excessive skin. Once this procedure is complete, the remaining skin is stitched back.

What is a full tummy tuck?

This procedure is recommended for patients who want to eliminate a substantial amount of excessive skin and fat. The main incision during this procedure is made from one hip to the other. This is placed low on your abdomen so that the resultant scar can easily be hidden within the panty line or bathing suit. The secondary incision will be made around the belly button which allows the surgeon to remove and then reattach it to a new location once the procedure is complete. This incision allows the surgeon to remove the excessive abdominal fat, tighten your abdominal muscles, excise the extra skin and reattach the belly button before suturing it.
