Our Tummy Tuck Procedures
At New You, we perform three main types of abdominoplasty procedures; traditional tummy tucks, mini tummy tucks, and drainless tummy tucks. The answer to the best tummy tuck option for you will come when you take into account your own medical, financial, and post-operative circumstances.
The Traditional Tummy Tuck
The classic tummy tuck is the longest standing of the three, proving its reliability as a relatively safe and effective procedure. The incision is placed within the pubic area and extends hip to hip allowing for excess skin and fat removal. The abdominal area is contoured with liposuction and the abdominal muscles typically tightened to achieve a flatter abdomen. Great candidates for this procedure are those with massive weight loss and excess skin both above and below the belly button, as well as women who have undergone pregnancies.
The Mini Tummy Tuck
The Mini tummy tuck is a great option for anyone who just needs to make that final step to get toward the flat stomach they’ve been working for. Oftentimes, people will plateau in their exercise efforts to leave a little “pooch” of excess fat and skin below the belly button. The mini tuck is less invasive than a traditional tummy tuck and has a speedier recovery time. This procedure is for you if you have excess lower abdominal skin below the belly button and desire fat reduction with contouring throughout the abdomen, waist, and hips.
The Drainless Tummy Tuck/Lipoabdominoplasty
One of the big developments in abdominoplasty in recent years is the development of the drainless tummy tucks. While traditional tummy tucks require draining tubes during the recovery that may add to your discomfort, this procedure eliminates any recovery drains. You can expect less discomfort and a faster recovery, among other benefits.
