Abdominal Plastic Surgery Methods

Full Tummy Tuck

This is the most common form of abdominal plastic surgery. This surgical method is used when the overall elasticity of the skin falls across the upper and lower abdomen, centering on the navel. After the surgery, you will have a new belly button in the ideal position.

Mini Tummy Tuck

This method is to cut off the skin under the belly button only if your belly has lost its elasticity. Especially if the scarred area of ​​a cesarean section is slightly covered with belly fat, a more effective result can be obtained by using a caesarean section scar.
