Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
There are essentially two type of tummy tucks. A full tummy tuck involves a full redraping of the abdominal skin as well as tightening of the entire abdominal wall musculature, with the umbilicus (belly-button) being reshaped and moved into a more desirable location. A mini tummy tuck is a smaller procedure which principally concentrates on tightening and reshaping the lower abdomen. Liposuction/liposculpture is an integral part of both types of tummy tuck.
