Want to know what kind of scar to expect with a tummy tuck? Do you need a full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) or a mini tummy tuck? What's the difference? Find out the answers to these questions in two minutes, explained by Dr. Caridi of Westlake Plastic Surgery in Austin Texas. Dr. Caridi has 30 years experience in cosmetic surgery and has performed hundreds of these procedures.
A full tummy tuck involves the removal of skin in the abdominal area with fascial tightening. The full tummy tuck yields the maximum about of flattening and tightening in the lower stomach area. With a mini tuck, the skin is tightened only between the belly button and pubic area, and no fascial tightening is performed.
