Tummy tuck

Sagging tummy skin and love handles—sometimes parts of your body just do not go away, no matter how much you diet or exercise. Tummy tuck gives a ray of hope for those looking for that gorgeous and tight waistline. Tummy tuck can improve all areas of your tummy (side abdomen, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, and love handles (muffin top)).

Types of tummy tuck

Tummy tuck (full abdominoplasty)

The most commonly performed surgery to eliminate fat, saggy skin, and loose muscle on the upper and lower abdomen. The location and shape of the belly button can be improved if necessary. The incision is a little longer than the cesarean section, however, the location can be easily covered by underwear or swimwear.

Mini tummy tuck (mini abdominoplasty)

The effect of a mini tummy tuck is limited to the lower abdomen. This surgery is recommended for those who have subtle sagginess on the lower abdomen and does not require improvement or change of location of the belly button. For women who have undergone a cesarean section, the surgery can be performed through the existing incision.

Extended tummy tuck (extended abdominoplasty)

A surgery to both removes excess sagging skin and stretch marks for defined results as well as tighten the muscles to enhance the overall shape of the tummy (upper abdomen, lower abdomen, side abdomen). The location and shape of the belly button can be improved if necessary. If liposuction is performed together with the extended tummy tuck, then the liposuction can be performed on an even wider area (compared to normal liposuction) to enhance the perfected and tight tummy result. Though the incision is relatively long, the surgery is performed so that the scar remains hidden when wearing underwear or swimwear.

Whole tummy tuck (circumferential abdominoplasty)

The incision is not limited to the front abdomen but runs around the whole waist. This procedure is for those who have lost a massive amount of weight in a short period of time and have extremely flabby skin, or those who may not see any effects from fat removal in only the front abdomen. The surgery effect is great as it can improve overall sagginess (upper abdomen, lower abdomen, side abdomen, love handles, even until buttocks). Though the incision is long, the surgery is performed so that the scar remains hidden when wearing underwear or swimwear.
