Corset abdominoplasty. This is a modification of the Fleur de Lys abdominoplasty to allow even more skin to be removed particularly in the upper part of the abdomen. There is an additional horizontal scar underneath the breasts. This procedure cannot be combined with liposuction in the same operation although it can be undertaken before or after in a separate procedure.
Full tummy tuck
Full abdominoplasty. This is the standard tummy tuck and is the most popular procedure. It’s particularly useful for people who have excess skin above and below the tummy button often with stretch marks such as after pregnancy. It stretches the skin from above the tummy button down to the pubic area. The scar is longer than in a mini-tummy tuck and it requires a scar around the tummy button. This procedure can be combined with liposuction.
Mini tummy tuck
Mini-abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). This diagram shows the skin that is removed in red and the resulting scar (red line). A mini-abdominoplasty removes some of the skin below the tummy button and tightens the remaining skin. It doesn’t tighten the skin above the tummy button. It avoids a scarring around the tummy button. It is a useful procedure when the excess skin is confined to the lower abdomen, particularly if there is already a scar there from a Caesarean section. This procedure can be combined with liposuction.
Fleur de lys abdominoplasty
Fleur de Lys abdominoplasty. This procedure is used for people who have lost a lot of weight and have a great deal of excess skin. It is much better than a full abdominoplasty at tightening the flanks (waistline). It requires a vertical scar in the middle of the abdomen. This procedure cannot be combined with liposuction in the same operation although it can be undertaken before or after in a separate procedure.
