What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck procedure is among the most popular plastic surgeries. Tummy tuck surgery involves removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to give the stomach a smoother and more contoured look.
Why Are There Different Tummy Tucks?
Every person has different goals and concerns. Your surgeon will aim to give you a realistic outlook on what to expect through surgery. At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Laser Center of Maryland, we offer multiple types of tummy tuck surgery to address your goals best. Some tummy tucks are more extensive than others, so what may be achieved with one will not be achieved with others. Your surgeon will help the patient understand the best procedure during the initial consultation.
What are the Different Types of Tummy Tuck Procedures?
Full Tummy Tuck
This procedure works wonders in tightening and contouring areas with excessive skin in the mid-section. The procedure concentrates on tightening and flattening sagging skin below and above the belly button.
Mini Tummy Tuck
This is the perfect solution for tightening areas in the lower abdominal region. Individuals worried about loose skin, known as the “pooch,” can get the best results with the mini tummy tuck.
High Lateral Tension Tummy Tuck
This is an excellent option for individuals looking to have an hourglass figure. The procedure is the same as a full tummy tuck and includes tightening the abdominal muscles horizontally and vertically. This cinches the waist while flattening the abdomen.
Anchor Incision Tummy Tuck
A petal-shaped incision is placed right above the abdomen to remove excess skin. It is a valuable tool for individuals who have lost weight and need horizontal and vertical abdominal tightening.
Tummy Tuck with Liposuction
After the excess skin is removed through the tummy tuck, the patient may want to add liposuction to extract the fat deposits. This procedure is a double punch in reshaping and contouring the needed areas.
