Commonly referred to as an Abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck involves the removal of skin and fat in the area below the belly button. The procedure requires an incision from hip to hip that will be stitched together within the bikini line to avoid as much visible scarring as possible. The resulting scar will depend on the patient, how much work is being done, and most importantly the skill of your plastic surgeon.
While a tummy tuck addresses the full abdomen, above and below the belly button, a mini tummy tuck uses a shorter incision to treat only the “pooch” area below the belly button for someone with little excess fat.
Who Are the Best Candidates for a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is suitable for men and women who are in good health.
Women who have had several pregnancies may find the procedure useful for tightening their abdominal muscles and reducing skin.
A tummy tuck is also an option for men or women who were once obese and still have excess fat deposits or loose skin around the belly.
Tummy tuck surgery may be appropriate for you if:
- You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
- You have realistic expectations
