Which Type of Tummy Tuck Is Right for Me?

Choosing Your Tummy TuckA tummy tuck may help you achieve the abdominal tone and appearance you cannot achieve through diet and exercise alone. Dr. Jay Orringer takes an individualized approach for each tummy tuck patient. During your consultation, you can discuss the options available for your procedure and how each can potentially improve your look.

A mini tummy tuck typically involves a smaller scar and often focuses on muscle tightening, liposuction and removal of limited lower abdominal skin.  If your issues are more concentrated below the navel, a mini tummy tuck may be the best option for you.

A full tummy tuck requires an incision, and therefore scar, around the belly button along with a longer lower abdominal scar than with a mini tummy tuck. However, a full tummy tuck allows for the possibility of more muscle tightening and removal of more sagging skin. Patients recovering from multiple pregnancies or significant weight loss may benefit from a full tummy tuck.

For patients with good skin tone and a primary concern of removing stubborn belly fat, liposuction may be the better choice. Liposuction can also be used in combination with a tummy tuck to potentially achieve a more optimal result.
