Tummy Tuck Procedures:
In tummy tuck procedure the surgeon makes an incision/cut from one hipbone to the hipbone just over the pubic area. A second cut is then made to free the belly button from the excess belly skin.
The surgeon then separates the extra skin from the abdominal wall and lifts the skin flap to expose the vertical belly muscles. The loose muscles are then tightened and stitched together in midline. This makes abdomen look flat with narrow waist line. The raised skin and fat flap is then pulled down and excess flap is removed.
The remaining skin flap is stitched back in new position, a new hole is created in the skin to reposition the navel.
