Overview of tummy tuck

Tummy tuck, also known as abdominonplasty, is a cosmetic surgery to reshape your belly in a short period of time. Tummy tuck is suitable for people who are having unwanted fat accumulation in the abdomens, or for women with sagging bellies or stretch marks after pregnancy due to lack of proper exercises and postpartum cares. In some cases, patients have already taken abdominal liposuction surgeries but had no noticeable results, doctors usually will recommend tummy tucks to these patients to achieve better shaping results. Tummy tuck is a relatively new type of plastic surgery with decades of development, its methods of operation continue to improve in recent years, the most common methods currently used by a plastic surgeon can be divided into the following types depending on the extent of the surgery: 

1, Complete tummy tuck, or full tummy tuck. This is a type of surgery that reshapes the whole abdomen area. Generally speaking, in the procedure of a complete tummy tuck, several incisions are made around hips and surrounding navel skin, then skin is detached so that extra abdominal muscles and fat are removed and tightened. The procedure also involves reconstruction of belly button and drainage of excess body fluids.

2, partial tummy tuck, or mini tummy tuck. This refers to the reshaping surgery that focuses specifically on lower abdomen, it applies to those with a mild flabby lower belly. Compared with complete tummy tuck, a mini tummy tuck has fewer incisions and quicker recovery. In the process of the surgery, smaller incisions are made around lower belly and the skin is detached to show belly muscles and fat that needs to be reshaped. Then the surgeon will remove those extra fat from the abdominal wall and stitch the flap back into place.
