Mini Tummy Tuck vs. Full Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy Tuck Surgery
This video explains the difference between full and mini tummy tuck surgery and which is more suitable for your body. Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty procedures refer to surgical removal of extra skin and fat in the abdomen for patients.
Many women, especially when approaching middle age, begin to really notice that area around the belly button. No matter how many abdominal exercises are performed, it just seems to stay there. The solution to choose from is either Mini Tummy Tuck or Full Tummy Tuck surgery abroad. But do you know its Difference?
The mini tummy tuck is smaller and less noticeable than incisions used for a full tummy tuck—there is just one at the bikini line. The goal of a full or modified tummy tuck is the same: to create a tighter, flatter stomach. Through a single, short incision at or above the pubic area that stretches a few inches across the lower abdomen, your plastic surgeon will remove excess skin, tighten the underlying slack muscle and perhaps use a fat-removal procedure like liposuction to further contour the area.
A mini tummy tuck involves more limited tightening of the muscles and removal of fat and skin, therefore smaller incisions can be used, and in many cases does not require an incision around the umbilicus.
Regardless of what type of tummy tuck treatment is needed, the results from abdominoplasty or lipoabdominoplasty are quite impressive.
Recovery from a mini tummy tuck is shorter than it is for a traditional tummy tuck (as well as a belt lipectomy, for instance) but it is important to stress that this procedure is still considered major surgery. Post-treatment care is also easier as well.
