Those who are considering a tummy tuck but are reluctant because of the scars will likely find an appealing option in an endoscopic tummy tuck with an incision only around the belly button.
Through an umbilical incision, and with the assistance of an endoscope, separated abdominal muscles (diastasis) can be tightened. Liposuction can be included to reduce fat.
For women who have excess skin as the result of pregnancy, however, this may not be the optimal solution. Pregnancy stresses and stretches the abdominal area from below the breast through to the pubic region. An incision around the navel can only treat limited excess skin in the area around the navel-far less than what most women experience with pregnancy.
As with any procedure, trust the expertise of your plastic surgeon when it comes to which technique will work best for you. Trying to minimize incisions is beneficial only when it doesn’t minimize the results you hope to achieve.
