Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery is intended to improve the appearance of your belly following weight fluctuation or pregnancy. Patients who seek this surgery will typically complain of increased abdominal girth. They may also struggle with sagging and/or fullness of the skin around the waistline. When considering a tummy tucking procedure two options are available; these include the full or mini tummy tuck.

Full Tuck

The full tuck allows for maximal resection of redundant abdominal skin. It also tighten the abdominal muscles when they have thinned out and weakened. However, the full tummy tuck prevents abdominal etching to be performed using high definition protocol. In contrast, the mini tummy tuck involves excision of redundant skin limited to the lower abdomen.

Mini Tuck

The mini tuck has the advantage of allowing for complete abdominal etching via high definition liposuction of the entire abdominal skin but the disadvantage of not allowing for a muscle tightening maneuver.

To determine whether you are full or mini tummy tuck candidate, please review the before and after results below.
