TUMMY TUCK

TUMMY TUCK, ALSO KNOWN AS ABDOMINOPLASTY, IS A SURGICAL PROCEDURE THAT FLATTENS YOUR ABDOMEN BY REMOVING EXTRA FAT AND SKIN, MAKING IT FIRMER AND SMOOTHER.

Tummy Tuck is a frequently performed procedure used to tighten overly stretched abdominal muscles and skin for a smoother, flatter appearance. The tummy tuck can also be combined with liposuction.

The best candidates for Tummy Tuck are:

In relatively good shape, except for the abdominal area.
Non-pregnant.
Not severely overweight.
Not planning to lose a considerable amount of weight.
Wanting to enhance their appearance and/or comfort.

How is a Tummy Tuck procedure performed?

In all cases, the candidate must be in good health. Find below the different types of Tummy Tuck:

Standard Tummy Tuck

After pregnancy, weight loss or muscle flaccidity.
Surgically it removes excess fat and skin from abdomen.
Abdomen becomes smoother and firmer by tightening weak muscles.
Horizontal scar, situated above the pubis.

Mini-Abdominoplasty

Less invasive than the standard one.
Excellent for people who have a small amount of fat in their abdomen.
A "mini surgery" in which the incision is smaller.
Horizontal scar, situated above the pubis.

Lipo-Abdominoplasty

This procedure combines the benefits of an Abdominoplasty with Liposuction.
Removes the fat from the upper abdomen with liposuction that a standard Tummy Tuck will not achieve.

Extended Abdominoplasty or Fluer-De-Lis
Addresses the excess skin and fat above the belly button often a result of massive weight loss.
The scar orientation is both, vertical and horizontal.
