What Is a Tummy Tuck?
The medical term for a tummy tuck is an abdominoplasty. There are two types of tummy tuck that can be undertaken:
Full tummy tuck
Partial tummy tuck
In the full procedure, a long incision is made above the pubic area, with a smaller one being made just below the belly button to allow the naval to be repositioned during the surgery. The skin is then separated from the abdominal wall to allow the muscles to pulled taught and secured with sutures. The skin is then pulled tight, with any excess being removed, before being stitched back into place.
A partial tummy tuck involves a smaller incision, and there is no need to reposition the belly button. The process can take up to 5 hours, but generally will only last from 1 to 3 hours.
