What type of tummy tuck is recommended for you?


As is the case with any modern plastic surgery procedure, the tummy tuck is highly customizable to deliver different results for different patients. We can use this procedure to correct different imperfections of the abdominal wall and combine it with other procedures to deliver superior results and a considerable improvement in the body.

When coming to the pre-operative consultation, many patients want to know what type of tummy tuck is recommended for them. To be able to answer this question, the plastic surgeon must perform a physical examination on the patient and also discuss his goals and expectations. 

Generally speaking, there are four main types of tummy tuck procedures that can be performed nowadays: the mini tummy tuck, the full tummy tuck, the extended tummy tuck, and the hourglass tummy tuck. Each of the procedures can follow a different surgical plan and can be performed in combination with other procedures, depending on the needs of the patient and the recommendations of the plastic surgeon.

The mini tummy tuck is recommended for patients with minimal excess skin on the tummy, often left after one or multiple pregnancies. The excess is situated on the lower part of the abdomen and doesn’t affect the superior part, so there is no need to address the area. The mini tummy tuck entails a small incision on the suprapubic area between the hip bones.

The complete tummy tuck often entails a longer incision and an additional incision needed to reposition the navel. This procedure is recommended when the patient has loose abdominal muscles and other imperfections such as umbilical hernia, aside from the excess skin on the abdominal area.

The extended tummy tuck is a more complex version of the complete tummy tuck that also addresses the flanks aside from the abdominal wall. After considerable weight loss, patients can be left with excess skin on the sides of the body and not only on the front. If we used just the traditional tummy tuck on these patients, they would be left with what we call dog ears – an excess of skin on the flanks that looks unappealing and needs to be surgically corrected. The extended tummy tuck entails incisions on the flanks as well, aside from the suprapubic area and around the belly button.

The hourglass tummy tuck is a different type of tummy tuck. This procedure is mostly recommended for patients who want to achieve the hourglass body shape. It is the combination of three different plastic surgery methods and techniques: liposuction, tummy tuck, and fat transfer. Liposuction is performed on areas with an excess of fat tissue, often the abdominal wall and the flanks. The excess skin is then removed from the tummy and the fat collected is reinjected into the hips. This way, we can create beautiful curves and redistribute fat for a better body definition.
