What Are The Different Types Of Tummy Tuck?
Tummy Tuck procedures, medically termed abdominoplasty, are performed to remove excess skin to create a tighter, lifted, and flatter abdomen. There are various surgical techniques that can be performed depending on the specific concerns of the patient.
Mini Tummy Tuck
This procedure is performed on only the lower section of the abdomen and so is only suitable for patients with concerns regarding this specific area. An incision line is created at the bottom of the abdomen running between the hips. Any excess skin is removed from the lower region of the abdomen and the muscles are tightened before closing the incision line with stitches.
Full Tummy Tuck
This procedure is suitable for patients who have concerns regarding excess skin and loose abdominal muscles on both their lower and upper abdomen. The surgical technique is very similar to the mini tummy tuck, as the incision line is also created across the bottom of the abdomen and runs from hip to hip. For a full abdominoplasty, the incision line tends to be longer so that more of the abdomen can be accessed. Excess skin is removed from areas across the entire abdomen and the abdominal muscles of both the upper and lower sections are tightened. In some cases, the belly button will be re-positioned on the abdomen before the incision line is closed with stitches.
What Procedures Can Be Combined With A Tummy Tuck?
The most common procedure to be combined with an abdominoplasty surgery is abdominal liposuction. The purpose of an abdominoplasty procedure is to remove excess skin and tighten the muscles. However, many patients also have concerns over unwanted fat deposits in their abdomen and so wish to combine the procedure with Liposuction.
The specific surgical technique being performed will impact where the liposuction can be performed on the abdomen, as a mini tummy tuck patients can only undergo liposuction of the lower abdomen. This allows for a more contoured result and is often recommended to patients by their surgeon during the consultation so that the best results can be achieved. For information on recovering from a liposuction procedure, you can view our blog

A Mommy Makeover Procedure nearly always includes abdominoplasty surgery as the stomach and the breasts are the typical areas that pregnancy tends to impact a woman and so these two areas are normally the focus of the procedure. Your surgeon will help recommend the most suitable procedures for your goals during your consultation. It is important to see a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in body and breast procedures so that you receive expert advice on the most suitable procedures and techniques.
How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost In Collin County Texas?
The cost of a Mini Tummy Tuck is much cheaper than other abdominoplasty procedures due to the fact the procedure is less extensive. According to RealSelf, the average cost of a Mini Tummy Tuck in the United States is over $6,300 while the average cost of a Full Tummy Tuck is over $8,300. The actual price of the procedure can be significantly higher than this based on the technique used, for example, a Fleur-de-lis Tummy Tuck is a more complex technique and so tends to cost more. Additionally, if liposuction of the abdomen is combined with the procedure this will also increase the cost of the surgery.
To find out the specific cost of your procedure you would need to book a consultation with a surgeon so that they can assess your specific concerns and goals to provide a more accurate cost of your procedure. Health insurance providers do not tend to provide coverage for patients undergoing abdominoplasty, but you should check your specific policy to discover your coverage.

Tummy Tuck Recovery
After undergoing an abdominoplasty procedure it is important to be driven home by an adult and have them stay with you for a couple of days. You will likely experience pain in the abdomen and will be prescribed pain medication and potentially antibiotics. Some patients will also have drains in place for the first week after the procedure and will need a follow-up appointment to have these removed.
RealSelf explains that the recovery process can be difficult from an abdominoplasty procedure and patients should not rush their recovery period. It is important that all Collin County Tummy Tuck patients take care of the incision and drain sites by keeping them clean and covered to prevent infection. It usually takes up to six weeks for patients to return to their normal activities and it is important to take at least a couple of weeks off work to give yourself time to heal and recover from the surgery.
Researching the recovery process is an important step to take if you are considering undergoing any cosmetic procedure. For more in-depth information on the recovery process and aftercare tips and instructions you can view our blog ‘A Patient’s Guide To Tummy Tuck Recovery Recovery in Dallas’.
