Different Types of Tummy Tucks
FULL TUMMY TUCK
This is usually the best tummy tuck option Phoenix AZ patients tend to inquire. It is an excellent choice for patients who want to flatten their abdomen above and below the belly button. During the full tummy tuck surgery, the plastic surgeon makes a horizontal incision between the hips, and around the belly button. The next step is to remove excess skin and fat tissue, then pull the remaining abdominal muscle and skin tightly over the belly. The surgeon will then reposition the belly button and close incisions with sutures.
Full tummy tuck surgery may be the best option for healthy men and women who have extra-large midsection skin, or weakened abdominal muscles. A full tummy tuck procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and most patients need to prepare for a recovery time of 2 – 4 weeks before resumption of normal activities.
MINI TUMMY TUCK
A mini tummy tuck is less invasive than a full abdominoplasty. You may qualify for a mini tummy tuck if you are a patient who wishes to address the abdominal area below the belly button. Many slender patients with a “belly pooch” (small lower abdomen bulge) qualify for a mini tummy tuck. The plastic surgeon will create a small horizontal incision below the belly button, then extract excess skin before tightening abdominal muscles and closing the incision. For a mini tummy tuck Scottsdale patients can expect it to be less invasive, thus repositioning of the belly button is not needed. Mini tummy tucks are usually performed under general anesthesia and patients typically just require 1 week in recovery before they can resume normal activities.
EXTENDED TUMMY TUCK
This is the most invasive of all abdominoplasty procedures. This procedure will target the full abdomen, as well as the hips and love handles, and is generally a great option for individuals with overall good health who wish to totally reshape the upper body. Your Gilbert tummy tuck surgeon will create a horizontal incision stretching across the lower abdomen and extending farther out on each side than a traditional tummy tuck. Surplus tissues will be removed, and the remaining abdominal muscles tightened. The surgeon will then use liposuction to get rid of excess fat in the love handle and hip regions. The final step is to reposition the belly button and then close the incision. Patients usually need 3-4 weeks in recovery before they can resume normal activities after an extended tummy tuck surgery.

FLEUR-DE-LIS TUMMY TUCK
The Fleur De Lis tummy tuck is typically performed on post bariatric patients who have a substantial amount of excess skin. Usually these patients have lost 100 pounds or more. This procedure removes the skin horizontally just like a traditional tummy tuck, but it also removes skin vertically. It is often performed in tandem with a full body lift, which is the removal of excessive skin in multiple areas of the body. This highly specialized tummy tuck procedure has two incision placements. One will be horizontally on the lower abdomen (just like a traditional tummy tuck) and the other will be vertical on the midline. When the incisions join, they will appear to form an upside down “T” or Fleur De Lis. Once the loose skin and fat are removed, the plastic surgeon will pull the adnominal muscles together if necessary.
PLUS SIZE ABDOMINOPLASTY
A Tummy Tuck on Plus Size individuals is for patients who have high BMI. This is for patients from 150 pounds, 220 pounds, or even 250 pounds. While there are still requirements for plus size women and men, Dr. LaBarbera is trained to perform plus size abdominoplasty on overweight individuals who’s weight loss efforts are not producing necessary results for a standard tummy tuck.
