Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure which treats skin sagginess, cracks and deformities arising after pregnancy or weight loss.
The tummy tuck consists of the following:
Dr. Beyhan practices all three types of abdominoplasty; mini abdominoplasty, full abdominoplasty and lipo-abdominoplasty.
A mini abdominoplasty is suitable for patients with skin sagginess limited to the area under the belly button; excess skin is removed and the belly button is not altered.
In most cases, patients have skin excess both under and over the belly button. For these patients, a full abdominoplasty is the best solution. The intervention may be assisted with a fixing of abdominal muscles for a flat abdomen.
For patients with excess fat, the tummy tuck is assisted with a liposuction. This procedure is commonly known as lipo-abdominoplasty.
