How 3 Tummy Tucks Are Different From Each Other
#1 Mini Tummy Tuck
This is kind of tuck is usually not the remedy of overly bulging paunches that develop with time and over weight on the abdomen. Mini tummy tuck is usually performed on the area which falls under the belly and is usually done for the people who need a minor re-contouring on the lower abdominal area. In this type of surgery, an incision is made on the lower abdominal region, the only difference is that in full tummy tucks the incision id extended from the left hip to the right.
Here, in the mini tummy tuck a small incision is made and it is also short enough so that it does not reach the belly button and the area near that. The tucks pull the skin taut after removing excess fat which is underlying in that area and the muscles present there get firmed up. If you have been in the hand of a good cosmetic surgeon, then you would get a really natural look and the texture would be smooth without any bumps.
So, basically, mini tummy tuck helps in the reshaping of the area below the belly button.
#2 Traditional Tummy Tuck
Traditional tummy tuck is different from the mini tuck for the simple and important fact that it is done on the entire abdominal region-upper, mid and lower. The incision is made from the area beginning from the lower ribs and ending at the pubis. A traditional tuck is commonly undergone by the people who have developed bulging tummies and paunches on the abdomen. There are many causes sue to which this area sags, thickens or becomes out of shape which include- sudden loss or gain of weight, having gone through pregnancy, having got C-section done during pregnancy or other complications and others.
The removal of fat on the entire upper, middle and lower abdominal area is more effective, comprehensive and detailed and is also the best if you are looking for a permanent remedy. During the surgery, the muscles of that area are tightened which makes the skin stretched perfectly, making those cellulite or unwanted bulges vanish. At times, though not always, this surgery could lead o the repositioning of the naval in order to make it look perfectly natural and neat.
#3 Extended Tummy Tuck
Now, after a clear understanding of the last two tummy tucks, the former involving the area below the belly button and the latter dealing with the full abdominal area, you get to have a hang of what the extended tummy tuck is all about. If you are looking for an overall shaping of the middle section of your body, then an extended tummy tuck is recommended for you. Here, the incision is made on the entire abdominal region and it extends to the back portion of the hips. The muscles are tightened after excess fat has been removed and the skin is stretched clean and tight. Your middle body section looks shapely, attractive and very toned, something that you must have been desiring since a long time when you were obese!
