Mini & Full Tummy Tuck
Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, is a major surgery suitable for both men and women with records of an ethical and healthy body. It is a process of eliminating loose skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. This procedure may help you achieve an ideal youthful body. Also, improving your body image and prevent self-consciousness is one of the primary concerns of this procedure.
A confident body includes parts and sections in their best shapes and sizes. Commonly, a flat abdomen highlights and improves the whole appearance of the body. However, there are circumstances where visible excess skin and fats are invading the whole area. These fat walls are commonly caused by multiple pregnancies for women. Though, some fats are just naturally unresponsive to any kind of diet and exercise. Both result in a distended belly and bloated looking stomach.
ABDOMINOPLASTY FOR FLATTER, TIGHTER STOMACH
Many people find themselves with excess skin and fat around the belly and decreased strength and tone of the muscles beneath. Whether it is from pregnancy, weight loss, surgery to treat obesity, or simply aging, we long for an improved body contour and a smoother shape to the abdomen.
Both men and women can achieve their ideal, flatter, and tighter stomach following an abdominoplasty procedure, more commonly called a “tummy tuck.” The procedure:
- Removes excess skin and fat
- Tightens muscles beneath the stomach
- Re-drapes the skin for an enhanced body shape
- Repositions the navel within the newly contoured abdomen
- Enhances the belly button, making it more vertically oriented
PARTIAL OR MINI TUMMY TUCK
A good alternative to a complete tummy tuck is a mini, or partial, tummy tuck. Also called a limited-incision abdominoplasty, the procedure is ideal for men and women whose excess skin. The fat is not severe enough to need a full tummy tuck, yet is too extensive for less invasive procedures to address.

FULL TUMMY TUCK AND MINI TUMMY TUCK: A DEEPER DIFFERENTIATING
Deciding on which type of tummy tuck to consider may depend on one’s skin condition and muscle indifference. Maxim Cosmetic Surgery is here to help you appreciate the differences between full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck and determine the best abdominoplasty approach that fits for you.
FULL TUMMY TUCK / COMPLETE ABDOMINOPLASTY
Full tummy tuck is considered as the most common abdominal contouring procedure. It is an abdominoplasty process in which abdomen incision is being done from hipbone to hipbone to eliminate the fats and skin from one’s lower stomach. It involves the process of moving one’s belly.
MINI TUMMY TUCK / PARTIAL ABDOMINOPLASTY
This abdominoplasty for flat stomach procedure is being performed through a smaller four-eight incision below the belly button. Unlike the complete abdominoplasty, this partial type does not involve and move one’s belly and the procedure may only take hours to be done. This surgery is for the people who only needs lesser fats and skin to remove especially on the lower abdominal region. However, some individuals may not be a good candidate for this surgery as they also have worries at the upper part of their abdomen.
WHAT RESULTS TO EXPECT?
The final results may depend on what type of tummy tuck surgery is performed. Full tummy tuck usually recovers longer than the partial procedure.

After the said period, you can finally see a more enhanced stomach, slimmer body profile, and a more confident version of yourself. You can expect a more positive thinking as you do not have to worry about your body and appearance. Also, you can finally find your comfort in wearing whatever clothing you desire instead of choosing the baggy ones.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS SURGERY COST?
