Mini Tummy Tuck or Extended Tummy Tuck, Which is the Better Option for Me?

Date :12-Oct-2019

You can consider Tummy Tuck when your fatty abdomen does not respond to any kind of exercise and diet. It helps remove extra fat and skin and also tightens the abdominal wall and gives you a flat and contoured tummy which you have always dreamed off.

Mini Tummy Tuck

This is mainly suggested for people who want to get rid of their stubborn belly pooch. Here the surgeon makes a single incision above the pubic mound and he tightens the loose muscles by removing the excess fat and skin.

Advantages Of Mini Tummy Tuck:

  • The scar is thin.
  • Not time-consuming, it only takes about two to three hours.
  • Simple procedure.
  • Quicker recovery.
  • Will give you a slimmer lower abdomen.
  • Can go home after a few hours of rest after the surgery.


Extended Tummy Tuck:

This is mainly suggested for people who have excess fat and skin on their tummy, hips and the sides of the lower back. It is an expanded version of Mini Tummy Tuck. The surgery will need elongated incisions which extend from hips to the back. During the surgery, the surgeon tightens the loose muscle and removes excess fat and skin. He also creates a new navel which will match the new body shape. He may also perform liposuction (a surgical procedure to remove fat) to achieve body contour. The surgical cuts are then stitched and dressed.
 After The Surgery:

  • You will have to stay at the hospital for one or two days.
  • You may have drainage tubes placed near the cuts to collect the fluid released.
  • Can cause swelling.
  • Will take a month or more to recover.
  • Must not take shower till the drainage tubes are removed.
  • Must not engage in any heavy activity until you have recovered.

Advantages Of Extended Tummy Tuck:

  • Better posture and better abdominal tone.
  • Some women, who in their post-pregnancy stage, face bladder control problems such as leakage of urine while sneezing, laughing and coughing, will find relief through the surgery.
  • Increased self-confidence.
