There are two types of tummy tuck, full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck.
lets have a review on tummy tuck you need.
How is a full tummy tuck done?
Many women do have a hanging pouch of skin consisting of more skin than fat in tummy area after childbirth, which has to be removed directly as this will not be responding to weight loss or liposuction alone. Tummy tuck can produce some extremely dramatic changes in the waistline and frontal abdominal contour by removing large horizontal ellipse of loose skin and fat. A full tummy tuck is often needed to restore the abdominal muscle separation and laxity to its original shape. The navel is moved at a new and normal higher position.
What is a mini tummy tuck?
Mini tummy tuck is often done on people whose fat deposits and laxity are located below the navel level only. During this procedure, the surgeon most likely will not move your belly button, and the procedure may take less duration and include less down time depending on your case.
What are the advantages of tummy tuck?
It is popular following pregnancy when massive weight loss or a flabby abdomen with weak muscles impairs body contour. Most patients report improved self-esteem as a result of this procedure. 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 and loose skin around the belly.
