What is Abdominoplasty Surgery?
Partial tummy tuck or mini-tummy tuck is a removal of the excess skin and/or fat below the navel (belly button). This procedure leaves a smaller scar than other procedures; however, the scar is permanent.
A complete tummy tuck involves removing excess fat and tightening the skin, as well as pulling the abdominal muscles together and stitching them. In some cases, the navel may be moved. This procedure leaves a scar from hip to hip. Tummy tuck procedures are typically performed with an epidural and under IV sedation or under general anesthesia. Which method used will be determined by your surgeon and discussed with you during your consultation.
