Full Tummy Tuck

Compare 33 clinics

Full abdominoplasty also known as full tummy tuck surgery, is a very complex cosmetic surgery performed in the abdomen area with the objective of making it look more firm, toned or thinner.
Full tummy tuck surgery is popular among patients that had one or several pregnancies, people that lost their tonus due to the aging process or after a significant weight loss. A complete abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck surgery often involves a liposuction in order to improve the final results.

• Older, slightly overweight women that have lost their tonus;
• Adults who are not happy with the aspect of their abdomen or with the results of dieting and sport;

Preparing for Full Tummy Tuck

Before opting for a full tummy tuck surgery or a complete abdominoplasty it is recommended that patients inform themselves over the risks and complications of the procedure. Patients should be in a good medical health, eat a healthy diet and quit smoking at least four weeks before the operation and several weeks after.

How is Full Tummy Tuck Performed?

A full abdominoplasty or traditional tummy tuck surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and it takes between two to five hours.
The surgeon makes an incision from a hip bone to the other just above the pubic area. A full tummy tuck surgery involves a second vertical incision in order to change the position of the navel and create a more appealing result. During the surgery, the doctor can tighten the muscles by pulling them closer together and stitching them with the scope of giving a more toned look and to create a smaller waistline. Sometimes liposuction might be used to improve the results by removing the unwanted fat tissue. After the procedure the excessive skin is trimmed away. After the full abdominoplasty is complete, the incisions are closed using surgical stiches and the full tummy tuck recovery period can begin.

Full Tummy Tuck FAQ

?
Full tummy tuck vs mini tummy tuck

A complete abdominoplasty is more complex and involves two incisions and sutures whilst it affects a larger area of the abdomen. A mini tummy tuck needs only a small incision whilst the skin and the fat of the lower abdomen are detached in a more limited way.

?
Are there any alternatives to a full abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck?

Cosmetics can be used to tighten the skin but they do not remove loose skin and they are not very effective. Also, other non-surgical alternatives like Coolsculpting, Lasers and Thermage can be used but only for minor changes.

?
What’s the difference between a liposuction and full tummy tuck?

With a full tummy tuck, excess fat and skin are removed while with liposuction only the excess fat is removed.
