Partial Abdominoplasty vs Regular Abdominoplasty

Individuals that get a mini tummy tuck have a small amount of extra skin and fat around their midsection. During the partial abdominoplasty, it takes a small incision to remove the excess tissue and fat.

The abdominal muscles are still tightened during the procedure. Then the skin will be stretched downward and stitched in place. Unlike a traditional abdominoplasty, the belly button does not need to be repositioned.

In general, those who receive Abdominoplasty have a lot of extra skin around their midsection. Often they also have a protruding belly. This procedure provides them with a more dramatic transformation than the partial option. But, if you are not sure which option if best for you, it is wise to talk to the surgeon or send us your pictures.. They can assess your body type and potential outcomes. Then, together you can decide which procedure is best.

If you are between both options, schedule a consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons here in Mexico. We will help you make the right decision.
