Differences Between Mini-Tummy Tuck and Full Tummy Tuck
At Aspira Plastic Surgery, Dr. Venkata Erella is happy to offer a variety of surgical procedures customized to you specific needs. Therefore, along with the standard full tummy tuck surgery, he offers a mini tummy tuck and an extended tummy tuck to his patients from the greater Austin area. While each procedure has its uses, patients are occasionally confused by the names. What is the difference between a mini tummy tuck and a full tummy tuck?
The primary difference between the two procedures is that the mini-tummy tuck only removes fat and skin below the belly button. This means:
Likewise, while the mini-tummy tuck is smaller than normal, the extended tummy tuck has a larger incision that allows for removal of more skin than a full tummy tuck creates. Deciding which abdominoplasty procedure meets your plastic surgery goals the best is best determined by visiting Dr. Erella??s practice and obtaining a professional consultation.
