Tummy tuck is sometimes confused with liposuction but there is a difference between the two. In liposuction, the fatty tissues are removed whereas in tummy tuck, the excess tissues and skin are removed. In most cases liposuction is combined with a tummy tuck to help sculpt the hips.

  • Post pregnancy fat gain in and around the abdominal region.
  • Bulging stomach
  • Post weight loss surgery
  • You want to keep yourself in good shape.

There are various types of tummy tucks that you can opt for depending on what you are looking for. For example:

  • Full tummy tuck: In this procedure, a large incision is made above the pubic bone and typically extends from hip to hip, and then the abdominal skin is tightened. A full tummy tuck usually takes between 2-3 hours.
  • Mini tummy tuck: In case of a partial tummy tuck, a comparatively smaller incision is made and the skin or tissue tightening is achieved. The procedure does not take as long as the first but can still take around one to two hours to complete.
