OTHER OPTIONS - Tummy Tuck
Mini-Tummy Tuck (Mini-Abdominoplasty)
: This technique requires a short incision at the pubic hairline and the navel (belly button or umbilicus) is not altered. Abdominal liposuction can be performed with a mini-tummy tuck. In addition, the fibrous component (aponeurosis) of the underlying abdominal musculature can be partially tightened below the umbilicus and slightly higher. This procedure is good for patients who have the following:
- Minimal skin laxity.
- Mild to moderate abdominal fat.
- Mildly to moderately stretched abdominal muscle wall and/or abdominal muscle separation.
The best candidates for this procedure are women who have very toned bodies with relatively low body fat content.
Liposuction Alone : With firm skin and good muscle tone present, liposuction alone can be done with satisfactory results. This is a good choice for women who plan to become pregnant in the future.
