Traditional Tummy Tuck
By NewBeauty Editors |
If you’ve had multiple pregnancies or lost a lot of weight, then you may need the traditional tummy tuck. It involves removing fat and saggy skin and repairing the muscles that have become stretched out. After an incision is made at each hipbone, fat is first removed, with liposuction or by excision, before the skin is lifted and tightened from the belly button down—any excess skin is removed. The muscles are tightened to pull them closer together, which provides a slimmer look.
Pros: Results from tummy tuck procedures are permanent unless extreme weight-gain is experienced.
Cons: A long scar will result. Because excess skin is removed, a new belly button will be created.
