Tummy tucks (abdominoplasties) come in a variety of types. Some involve tightening of the abdominal muscles in the midline, various techniques include liposuction during the same operation, certain types of abdominoplasties place tension on the tissue at different locations, and some abdominoplasties involve repositioning of the belly button. …the tummy tuck must be carefully tailored to each individual patient.
We commonly perform two broad types of abdominoplasties – the Traditional Abdominoplasty and the Avelar-Abdominoplasty (liposuction-based tummy tuck). These generalized types of tummy tuck operations are then further tailored to the individual patient by the careful use of liposuction, muscle tightening, and possibly repositioning of the belly button. All of these operations involve removing excess skin from the abdomen via an incision placed under the underwear/swimsuit line. All of the tummy tuck variations that we use are carefully designed to create the best aesthetic results while maintaining safety and minimizing any potential complications.
Abdominoplasty is anything but a one-size-fits-all operation.
