Is a DC tummy tuck right for you?
Do you have excess skin or fat around the abdominal area? Pregnancy, weight loss, lifestyle, and genetics can play a large role in causing excess skin and fat which can take a toll on your mental health. Many individuals suffer from excess skin or fat in their midsection that doesn’t seem to go away even no matter what sort of diet and exercise they do.
If you think you’re feeling less than your best because of your tummy, a tummy tuck procedure may be able to help you.
Types of tummy tuck procedures
- Extended tummy tuck– If you’re looking for a major change, the extended tummy tuck may be right for you. While we recommend that patients are near their ideal weight prior to the procedure, the extended tummy tuck can make a drastic difference in your appearance. This procedure is best for those who have lost a significant amount of weight and have been left with a lot of excess skin. This is often completed by a hip-to-hip incision and sometimes an incision on the lower back.
- Full tummy tuck– A full tummy tuck involves the hip-to-hip scar commonly associated with the tummy tuck. This can drastically alter the appearance of your stomach by removing fat and excess skin to achieve your goals.
- Mini tummy tuck– Some patients only require slight changes to achieve their goals. A mini tummy tuck is a great option for those wishing to make a small to moderate change and can often be completed by liposuction.
