Tummy Tuck overview
A tummy tuck flattens and tones a saggy, protruding abdominal area. Excess fat, tissue, and skin are removed, the muscles are tightened, and the remaining skin is repositioned to give the abdomen a flatter, more attractive contour.
A tummy tuck can benefit a woman who’s gone through multiple pregnancies, a person who’s experienced weight loss, or someone who simply considers the abdomen to be a “problem area.”
Tummy tuck categories:
Mini: tightens the lower abdominal wall skin only (shortest scar)
Standard: tightens all fo the abdominal wall skin (standard scar).
Extended: tightens the abdomen and the flanks or sides (longest scar extending around the flanks onto lower back).
